Geography

In Geography this half term we will be completing a project called 'Anywhere Island'.  It follows on from work we did before Christmas so that we can use that learning to help us while we are learning at home.

We will be discovering an Island, identifying its' location, human and physical features, creating a national identify, devising a legal system, discovering a new species and developing an eco-tourism industry.

Look at what we have been up to!

The Island Rules!

Stop the Press! A New Discovery...

After week three's discovery, our Islands became very famous! Everyone wanted to visit them to get a glimpse of this rare species. Nature film crews and international television stations became desperate to film this creature in its' natural habitat and get an interview with the discoverer of this incredible new species. Suddenly people were asking: how they could travel to the Island, where could they stay, where could they eat and what was there to do on the Island. The demand to develop tourism had begun!
We listened and explored the following stories before launching into learning all about eco-tourism and developing an eco-tourism industry on our islands.   

Eco-Tourism 

Since the discovery of a rare species, the demand to visit our Island’s grew hugely. We read the books, 'The Promise' and 'Where the Forest Meets the Sea' and explored the positive and negative impacts tourism can have on a place and its' population. We explored eco-tourism and developed eco-tourism on our islands.

Today, to begin our topic on Ancient Greece, we had to label all the countries in Europe that we could, then use an atlas to find out all the ones we didn’t know! We found out that although we could name lots of countries, we had to use an atlas to find out exactly where they are.

Please have a look at some of our Eco-Tourism Projects

We studied climate line graphs, some with two sets of data on them, using what we have learned about different biomes to identify which graph belonged to which biome.
