In this unit pupils will continue their study of geography with a focus on the continent where they live – Europe.
Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about countries and borders by distinguishing between Spain’s natural and political borders using a map of the Iberian Peninsula.
On the first two content pages, pupils explore the different countries that make up the continent of Europe and identify and locate their capital cities on a political map.
This is followed by an in-depth look at the physical geography of Europe, providing pupils with an opportunity to learn more about the major bodies of water including rivers, seas and oceans as well as important mountain ranges featured on a physical map.
The last two content pages consolidate much of what pupils have learned with examples of mountain ranges and rivers that form natural borders between some European countries.
The new vocabulary in this unit builds on the basic vocabulary pupils have studied in previous units and concepts are explained in greater detail. They will also improve their skills of map-reading, and observation and interpretation of visual information.
