Autumn Term - Geography and History Knowledge Organisers

Update: W.C 14.09.20

Hello Everyone,

We hope that you are all well. We have listed a number of tasks for you to complete- it’s really important that you carry your learning on at home. You have all done extremely well to adjust back to normal school routine, so let’s try maintaining that at home too!

 

Task 1- Reading:

Enjoy a book; get immersed into another world! We expect you to continue reading your Home Reader book at home. By the time you come back, you should be ready to swap it out for a new one. J

We have attached a link to ‘Escape from Pompeii’. This is a book we’ll be using in Whole Class Reading and English. You have been learning about Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius in art and would have started learning about it in history too. Get a head start!

Non-fiction reading on Pompeii that we used in English has been attached too- recap. Documents are below.

Attached is a word document with different English-based activities for you to complete. We want to read some of the incredible work you do- please upload what you do using the link above!

  1. Share the ‘Solar System in my Pocket’ task with your family – which planets are closest to the sun and which are furthest from the sun? Can you name the planets in order? If you would like to repeat the activity at home, follow the link which includes step-by-step instructions: https://www.ogdentrust.com/assets/general/Phizzi_Practicals_solar-system-pocket.pdf

  • What is the order of this planet from the sun? 
  • Is it an inner planet or an outer planet?
  • What colour is the planet?
  • How many moons does it have?
