Our new topic for this half term (Spring 1) is ‘Land Use and Settlements’. We are going to focus more on the land use part in the first half term, looking at how land is used in Leicester and around the rest of the United Kingdom. This learning will include some map work, as the children will be analysing maps looking at how land is used and also drawing a sketch map of their own classroom.
Our topic for this half term continues to be ‘Land Use and Settlements’. We are going to focus on the idea of settlements this half term (Spring 2) looking at what a settlement is, features of a settlement and how these might change over time, as well as the names of settlements from the past and what they reveal about the settlement itself.
