World Cup activities linked to KS2 Geography objectives

World Cup activities linked to KS2 Geography objectives

Three different activities: each activity would be more than 1 lesson long for younger children, but each may last for an hour with Year 6 children. Focuses on key areas from the Geography curriculum. All activities are research based so would require laptops/ Ipads to complete. Focuses on the countries that will be taking part in the World Cup: locating the countries, capital cities, facts about the physical geography, matching flags to countries. Two activities come with answer sheets, the 3rd activity is open ended therefore the answers would have be checked (perhaps cross checked with another pupil who has chosen the same country). National curriculum coverage is included.

Pompeii art topic - KS2

Pompeii art topic - KS2

This resource contains a series of six lessons. I have attached planning, slides and resources to enable children to develop painting and pastel skills, whilst also understanding the sketching techniques of perspective and using a vanishing point. The final product is for each child to sketch a section of a Pompeii scene, add colour using pastels or paints and then for them all to be put together into one large image. I taught this topic to Y5 as part of our geography topic ‘Violent Volcanoes’.
