We began our Spring Term's topic 'Island Warriors' by locating Europe on a world map and naming the other 6 continents. We then used atlases to find the names of the countries in Europe and labelled a map of Europe.
We are going to focus much of our work this term on Iceland, to compare our locality to a region in another European country. The children used the internet to begin to find out some facts about Iceland, such as what is the capital city, how many people live there, what natural features can be found on the island?
We have been looking at the animals that are found in Iceland and how they are being affected by climate change. We discussed what factors are contributing to global warming and how humans can stop this increasing.
