Year 5 topic planning South America

Here is my personal medium term planning for South America topic covered in year 5. I have colour coded all of the relevant NC links that are covered throughout this topic as well as provided some initial Learning Challenge questions to generate class or group discussions. Feel free to adapt it to suit your needs as it is completely editable. Ideal for someone new to the year group who needs a bit of a starting point. I have also included a SMART presentation that I made to support one of the sessions. I hope this proves to be useful.
