History & Geography

History & Geography

We start Summer 1 by building mapping skills which allows the children to further explore the range of maps available to geographers and to develop their understanding of the key features of maps. The children will study a range of maps and atlases, including digital maps, and compare their features.They will learn to use the eight compass points to give directions and give grid references to locate places on a map. 

In Summer 2, the children will be learning about the Victorian era. This will give the children an opportunity to build on their knowledge of chronology, placing the key events during this period on a timeline. They will also explore the working conditions & rights and the key achievements of that time.
