Dream, Believe, Achieve


Year 3/4


Who Am I? – The children will learn all about classification.  They will learn what the key features of Fish, Reptiles, Mammals and Amphibians are.


Why are jungles so wet and deserts so dry? - Throughout this topic, pupils are encouraged to reflect upon how climate has such an important influence upon landscapes, plants, animals and human activity on Earth – they investigate this relationship at a number of scales. Pupils apply a wide range of geographical and computer skills throughout the enquiry to enable them to better understand the relationship between climate and living things and also to introduce them to the concept of biomes. Towards the end of the enquiry the pupils are able to develop their understanding of how climate is the main factor determining the distribution of biomes on Earth through the study of two biomes in depth.


Why are jungles so wet and deserts so dry- the children will complete a piece of art linked to their geography work.  This piece of art will:

  • allow the children to draw in the third dimension
