How to learn a new word at home with parent/carer

Hi 5P. You can see that in this new topic there are lots of new vocabulary in our Geography learning. Below is a video to help you learn some new words at home using the word map. We have done lots of these in class and maybe you could make some at home with someone who looks after you.

Try making word maps for some of the words below or if these are too tricky that is ok. Look at new words of objects in your house. Ball, bowl, spoon. Think about how you would describe them?

remember sounds on the right, characteristics on the left.


We would love to see some of your new words.

Geography – Human and Physical Features

Can you separate these pictures into physical and human features?



Now watch the video to see if you got the right answers
