Summer Topic 4


How Does Kampong Ayer Compare with Where I Live?


We will be learning all about the water village, Kampong Ayer and how it compares with where we live in the UK. We will end our Geography topic with a 'Kampong Ayer afternoon' - sampling foods commonly eaten in Brunei/South East Asia and making our very own water houses.

Our Objectives are to look at:

Identify key physical and human features, including: hills, mountains, river, stream, tropical rainforest, vegetation, season and weather, village, city, town, house, office, shops, bridges, boardwalk, water house, .

Use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, as well as the countries, continents and oceans studied at this key stage.
Use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map.

As geographers we will:
Understand the difference between key physical features of Kampong Ayer and High Legh
Identify the human features of Kampong Ayer and High Legh
Name the continents
Locate places on a map
Use simple compass directions
Use language associated with differing locations
Understand how different areas compare
Understand seasonal and daily weather.



In English we are reading, 'Grandad's Island' and will be writing a return narrative.


We will be reading, 'This Morning I met a Whale' as our class book.
