Throughout Spring term 1, we were learned about the continent of North America. We investigated the different countries and were quite surprised to find that there are a lot more than we first thought!
In Geography, we learned about the physical geography of the USA and looked closely at the vastly different regions: the mountainous west, the Great Plains, the Canadian Shield and the varied eastern region.
After studying North America, we narrowed our focus to the city of San Francisco. We researched this fascinating city and examined different physical and human features such as the Golden Gate Bridge and San Andreas Fault. We wrote discussion texts based on the question - Moving to San Francisco - Good or Bad?
In the early Spring term we also learned about earthquakes and the causes of these across the world through the study of plate tectonics. We linked this to our English writing focus - a discussion about San Francisco.
