The topic this term is called:



The topic this term is called:

'Where in the World Are We?'

It is a Geography/Science based topic.



The Science focuses on Electricity

The children will:

  • Associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit
  • Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches
  • Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram



The children will learn skills linked to Mapwork, using a compass and latitude and longitude


  • use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries and describe features studied
  • use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and key (including the use of Ordnance Survey maps) to build their knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world
  • Identify the position and significance of latitude, longitude, Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Arctic and Antarctic Circle, the Prime/ Greenwich Meridian and time zones (including day and night)



In computing we will use Scratch to create games.

By the end of the unit most children will be able to:

Program an algorithm as a sequence of game instructions with actions and consequences.


Here are the knowledge organisers for this term. The knowledge organisers show a brief overview of the topics that we are covering in our science and geography lessons this term.
