History / Geography


The focus of our work this term is, geography as it is based around our topic of ‘River Deep, Mountain High’.  


Whilst learning about ‘Mountains’ we:

  • Identify how mountains are formed
  • Describe key aspects of a mountain’s physical geography
  • Name and locate key mountains and ranges in the UK and across the world.
  • Compare and contrast mountain ranges: Snowdonia and Himalayas.
  • Suggest questions for geographical enquiry : tourism in Snowdonia.
  • Analyse evidence and draw conclusions:  ‘Responsible Tourism Guide’.
  • Describe key aspects of physical geography – rivers.
  • Use fieldwork to observe and record the physical features of a local river: including sketches, plans, and digital technologies.
  • Name and locate topographical features – rivers, in the UK and the world.
  • Carry out independent research: information poster about a river.


Our classroom learning is enhanced by our residential trip to Dol-y-Moch, where the children consider aspects of responsible tourism and consolidate their understanding of features of mountains and mountain ranges. 


Additionally, our ‘Local River Study’ at Coombe Abbey, allows the children to complete their field study skills, where they measure the depth, speed and width of a river as well as sketching and annotating geographical features.
