Topic

Our Topic this half term is Geography based and is the French Riviera.  We have looked at our coast line in England and now will move to looking at a coastline in Europe to compare.  Here are your tasks for this week.

 

Vocabulary you will need to know this week-

Latitude- imaginary lines that form circles around the Earth east-west, parallel to the Equator. These lines run horizontally.

Longitude- imaginary lines that run around the Earth vertically (up and down) and meet at the North and South Poles. These lines are known as meridians.

Greenwich Meridian- Time zones are divided by imaginary lines called meridians which run from the North Pole to the South Pole. There is an imaginary line running through the UK called the Prime Meridian. It runs through a place in London called Greenwich. The Prime Meridian splits the world into eastern and western hemispheres and is sometimes known as The Greenwich Meridian.

 

  1. Read through slides 1-6 of the PowerPoint.  If you do not have PowerPoint, use Google or an Atlas to look at what the lines of Latitude are.  Can you label them on the worksheet?
  2. Read to slide 10.  This time you can label both the main lines of Latitude and Longitude ion the sheet. Can you also find France and The United Kingdom and label them?  Use Google to help if you do not have the Power Point.
  3. Read to the end of the PowerPoint.  Can you use the information to complete the gaps in the sentences?  If you do not have PowerPoint, use Google to research what the Greenwich Meridian is.
