History and Geography

Hi everyone,

 

I hope you are all well.

Here is where you will find the History and Geography lessons for all year groups. 

Years 3 and 4 are moving onto our new Geography topics now it is summer term.

Year 3's new topic is 'Climate'.

Year 4 are on 'Our World'.

Year 5 and 6 are on History. Year 5 are continuing with 'The Impact of War', Year 6 are on 'Mayan Civilisation'. To keep up your Geography - go onto Toporopa which we have used at school and see if you can still do the challenges.

If you have your History/ Geography book - great - if not, just use paper and collect any work into a folder if possible. 

When you've done a piece of written work based on one of my lessons - you can email it to me on my school email. Check the spelling of key words before you send it!!

 

I'll also be putting up some Singing Assembly videos on our Bordon Junior School YouTube channel, so have an occasional break for some singing and don't forget to do the actions too. You can teach the songs to your family members as well.

 

With best wishes to you and your families,

Mr. Boll
