In Geography we will look at physical features of different places and research why they are important. We will use maps to identify different physical features such as, mountains, forests, beaches, oceans and rivers.

In literacy lessons we will use books about the sea side and sea creatures as our starting point.  We will also read lots of books written by the same author.
