Geography wc 1st March 

Aerial photographs 

Go through the power point together.  Explain what an aerial photograph is and how it is different to other photographs. 

Don't worry about page 13-15 (Y2's do continents) 

Task- on the aerial photographs find the following: river, bridge, buildings, sea, coast, forest and hill. 

Challenge- I have also attached a photo pack to look at. Do you know where the photographs are taken? Can you describe them? Can you compare them?  What features can you spot? 


Curriculum wc 22nd February 2021 Spring 2



You will need access to a globe, an atlas or a map for this task. This can be digital.  I have attached a power point with the maps on too. It's good practice for children to use and experience a variety of maps and globes. 

Locate the British Isles (the geographic term) on a world map. Look at the water surrounding the British Isles.  Point out that we are an island.  Name the waters (Atlantic Ocean and North Sea).  Recap the 4 countries of the UK and their capital cities.  Can they find them on a map? Locate France and point out that it is across the English Channel.  Locate Ireland and Northern Ireland and that it is across the Irish Sea.

Task- Draw a map of the British Isles.

Challenge- mark out the four countries and identify their capital cities.  Can you find their flags? How are capital cities identified on a map?



Mini project about your family.

I have attached lots of different resources to help you.  You don’t have to do all of them, choose what works best for you and feel free to present in your own way.

The key learning for the children is to:

  1. Use a timeline to place the family in a historical context.
  2. Use a family tree to show the past in child’s context, parents and grandparents.
  3. Ask how is my life different to when my parents were children?
  4. Ask how is my life different to when my grandparents were children?

Encourage them to ask questions and find out the answers together.  Use photographs, books, video clips and the internet to find out what life was like in different decades.  Encourage them to talk about the similarities and differences.

You could make a scrapbook/album of your child’s work.

I know this topic can be a sensitive matter, so if you feel you need specific support in talking about loved ones that have died, please get in touch and I can suggest some ideas to help.


* Black and white sheets of the human body. Choose the boy or the girl body and label the body parts using the words at the bottom of the page. 

** Coloured sheets of the human body. Choose the boy or the girl body and label the body parts using the words at the bottom of the page. 

*** Draw a human body and label the main body parts.

**** Draw a human body and label as many body parts as you can. 


Week beginning 8th February 2021

Safer Internet Week

In school this week we are learning about internet safety which is more important than ever right now with children accessing technology and the internet more than they usually would.


  1. A video aimed at 5-7 year olds, explaining that they might not be talking to who they think they are talking to on video games.


  1. Create a digital footprint. Draw around your foot or your shoe. Then talk to your adult about all of the things you do online. For instance, play video games, watch YouTube videos, go on social apps such as TikTok. When we visit/post on places such as this online we leave behind a trace. This is called a digital footprint because whatever you do online can be traced back to you, even if you delete it!
    Inside your footprint (I have also attached one below if you would prefer to print one off), you can write, draw and colour all of the things you get up to online. I have attached an example of a completed footprint below to show you some that other children have completed.

        3. All of the children have their own account for where there are lots of games and activities for them to browse at their leisure. Prior to us working at home, the children were
           given their log in details which they were instructed to stick on the cover of their homework books. If you cannot locate yours then please contact your teacher who will be able to provide it to you. Once you log
           in, an online safety quiz and some other challenges have already been assigned to you. Once you complete this you will then be able to submit it virtually to your teacher. Feel free to have a play around on the
           other games and activities too. We look forward to viewing your work  :) 

Science Quiz

Science 4th February

Sort the animals from page 2 into the Venn diagram depending on whether they are...

Carnivores - Animals that eat meat (A good way to remember is 'carni' sound like chilli con carne which is made of meat!)

Herbivores - Animals that eat plants, nuts and seed (A good way to remember this is 'herb' is like herbs which are plants!)

Omnivores - Animals that eat both meat and plants, nuts and seed. (A good way to remember is omnivores are greedy and like to eat both meat and plants om NOM OM!)

wc 25th January Here you will find work for Science, History and Geography. 



David Livingstone

This week we are looking at timelines.  The children have already covered timelines in Autumn term so they should be familiar with it. 

Use the sequencing cards and/or the information you found out last week about David Livingstone to put key dates in order on a timeline.  You can use the format provided or make your own.  Just draw a straight line and add the dates and a brief description about what happened at that time. 


Geography links 

These links maybe useful for you at home,


This link is to twinkl and the photos that we put online last week. (twinkl)


This link is a teachers plan with the pictures and tasks for this week.
