This essential skills and knowledge companion project teaches children to locate countries and cities, and use grid references, compass points and latitude and longitude. They learn about the layers of the Earth and plate tectonics and discover the five major climate zones. They learn about significant places in the United Kingdom and carry out fieldwork to discover how land is used in the locality.
This project is part of the Cornerstones Curriculum which is available through an annual licence for Curriculum Maestro.
Our children are now becoming knowledge-rich, due to all the support that we’ve been given through the curriculum and Cornerstones. It’s been a fantastic resource for us, to make sure we have challenge in every lesson.
