Our first wider curriculum topic for this half term is Marylebone!
We are focusing on geography this half term, looking at our local area and all the ways we can explore it!
In our lessons we will be thinking about specific geography skills whilst looking at Marylebone and learning all about its key buildings. We will be learning about what an aerial view is, what it means to take an aerial photo and how this changes our perspective! We will be practicing our map skills, learning how to draw a simple map and how we can use this to identify buildings in Marylebone. During our lessons we will be learning and thinking about how to use directional language (e.g. near, far, left, right) plus how to use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West).
We will be exploring the local area as a class, walking around Marylebone and creating a map, sketching and drawing what building and landmarks we can see on our way!
I am excited to learn about the fantastic local area to our school, and learn lots of new facts and geography skills along the way. Read the questions below and post your answers on the blog. I look forward to reading your thoughts and ideas!
