Welcome to Badger class.  

This half term we will be thinking about the question 'Do Other Islands Look Like Ours?'
During this half term, Badgers will be recapping the countries of the UK, the capital cities and
surrounding seas. We will be adding to our knowledge by finding out about major rivers and landmarks, both man made and natural.
Once we have gained this knowledge we will recap the poles and the equator and compare and contrast other islands around the world with ours, specifically Sri Lanka and Iceland. We will be looking at maps, atlases and globes to locate different human and physical features and different countries.
Throughout this project we will be reading the chapter book ‘The Tindims of Rubbish Island’ by Sally Gardner. We will be comparing the fictional island with those we have studied. Badgers will be able to create their own map with a key.
