This essential skills and knowledge companion project teaches children about locating map features using a range of methods. They learn about the Prime Meridian, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and worldwide time zones and study interconnected climate zones, vegetation belts and biomes. Children learn about human geography and capital cities worldwide before looking at the UK motorway network and settlements. They carry out an enquiry to identify local settlement types.
This project is part of the Cornerstones Curriculum which is available through an annual licence for Curriculum Maestro.
You go around school and see children engaged in what they're doing and inspired about the learning that's going on. The atmosphere feels like it's changed in the school. There's a kind of buzz about it that wasn't always there before.
