worksheets and activities, with planning to link to Katie Morag topic, differentiateed activities for children to show their understanding of physical and human features of a landscape. Children choose which activity they would like to do - colour coding a drawing of Katie's Island, cutting and sticking different picutres of features into the correct column on a table, or using a sheet of useful words to write their own sentences to explain the difference between the two types of feature. Two other activity sheets are on here to use with this lesson as well, under physical / human

Children develop collage skills as well as understanding of Tudor houses and materials used to build them as part of the Great Fire of London Topic. Children then look at paintings of the Great fire of london, thinking about secondary sources, and then paint atmospheric fiery pictures to form the background of a display. Very effective when all put together.

Lots of photos of different social groups and activities that require specific clothing to look at. Links well with an activity making paper clothes for paper dolls (looking at how many layers people used to wear).
