Term 4  - Countries and Cities

 

This term our topic is based around learning about countries, cities and their characteristics. Year 3 are going to be taking on the role of explorers, travelling around the world to hunt for the escaped penguins from Central Park Zoo. They will be travelling around the world, visiting different countries and identifying human and physical features that may make the penguins want to stay in the country or may make them want to visit the next one.
