two more sheets to go with previous ones for this topic. Cut and stick sheet with pictures of physical and human features for children to sort plus drawing od Katie Morag's Island where children are instructed to colour physical features green and human features red.

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.

IWB pages to work through to explain the difference between physical and human features of an environment. The last page has lots of different features hiding the words physical or human behind them depending on what they are, as a plenary to the lesson children can come up and say what type they think it s and why, then move the picture to reveal the correct answer.
