Our Changing World – Animal Antics
Children experience ‘our changing world’ in a variety of ways. They make observations of animal life in the school grounds, investigate the variety of birds that visit a school-based feeding station and learn about caring for different animals over time.
What is the geography of where I live?
Children are encouraged to distinguish between geographical features that are essentially ‘human’ in origin and those physical features that are natural or at least semi-natural. Reflecting on whether anything on Earth today can be considered truly ‘natural’ is something that will crop up in later enquiries in other year groups.
