Learning Together & Making a Difference


Spring - Exlpore

Below, you will find a copy of the Explore project placemat. This document encompasses sticky knowledge, essential connections, recommended readings, subject-specific concepts, key vocabulary, and potential career opportunities associated with this project.

Big Question: How is the world split and yet connected?  


The children explore in depth where they are in the world looking at maps on different scales. The sectioning of places is also explored including cities and counties. They explore a variety of maps and think through how height is marked on a map through the use of contour lines. They then learn about time zones and problem solve a number of scenarios to work out what time it is in different places in the world. Alongside learning about geographical skills and knowledge, the children explore the concept of global connections, fake news, and how we can connect safely with others to make a difference by being kind to the world as a global community, respecting human rights and the environment.
