Y4 – Americas

This term, we are learning about the Americas as part of our Geography curriculum. The children have used Google Earth and atlases to locate North and South America and to describe its location. They have had to identify the equator as well as using compass points to do this. We have begun exploring some of the countries in South America and their capital cities as well as find out key information to complete a fact file on their chosen country. This led to a discussion on what information was important such as population, geographical features and important buildings and monuments. Next, we will be focusing on North America and answering some of the questions they have about North America.
