This essential skills and knowledge companion project teaches children about compass points and four and six-figure grid references. They learn about the tropics and the countries, climates and culture of North and South America. Children identify physical features in the United Kingdom and learn about the National Rail and canal networks. They conduct an enquiry to prove a hypothesis, gathering data from maps and surveys before drawing conclusions.
This project is part of the Cornerstones Curriculum which is available through an annual licence for Curriculum Maestro.
It is a companion project to the history project Invasion.
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.
