Welcome to Summer Term

Summer is here!

 

We hope that you have all managed to have a lovely two week break. We have lots of A fun planned again this half term. Year 3 will have swimming with school for the first time, we have a residential and also sports day.

 

We are looking forward to this term with you all.

 

Mrs Niven and Mrs Westmoreland 

Summer 1

 

Our enquiry question for this half term is:

 

 

 How are climate zones different around the world?

 

This geography unit will involve the children setting up their own weather investigation using a weather station and record the weather in their local area across the term. They will also learn that climate differs around the world and the different climate zones, their position around the world and their positions in relation to the Equator and the Tropics. 

Later, the children learn more about specific climate zones (polar, subpolar, temperate, Mediterranean, tropical, equatorial, and arid), and compare them. They also use atlases to find specific places in certain climate zones, write the latitude for specific places, and compare places within different climate zones.

At the end of this unit, the children will investigate the weather and climate of the United Kingdom and perform their own experiments using a weather station.
