This term we will be on a voyage of discovery to North America as we learn about the countries and geography of this fascinating continent. Year 5 will learn about the climate, the geographical features, capital cities and timelines of North America through a range of learning activities, giving them an insight into how life in North America is different to life here in the UK.
