Last week we learned about the history of chocolate and how it has been used for many many centuries, even before Jesus was born.
This week we are learning where the equator, the poles and the UK are on a world map and how where the countries are on a globe affects their weather. We are working towards understanding the countries where chocolate can be grown.
At the end of this session:
Reception children should know where the United Kingdom is on a world map.
Year 1 children should know where the United Kingdom is on a world map and say where they would find hot and cold countries on a world map.
Year 2 children should know where the United Kingdom is on a world map, say where they would find hot and cold countries and identify the seven continents and seven oceans on a world map.
Please read the presentation to your child, helping them to answer the questions as you progress.
There are some activities for you to do.
Reception children should just explore the world map and find the countries they are familiar with.
Year 1, please complete work sheet 1A.
Year 2, please complete either worksheet 1 B or 1 C.
There are some domino cards at the bottom of the worksheet. The children will read the clue on each Domino Card and match it the correct animal. The clues include information about the climate each animal lives in. When they complete the domino matching give the children the Picture Cards. Using their knowledge from the Domino Card they can sort the Picture Cards into groups of hot or cold climate animals.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
