What have you learnt in Geography this year?

Learning about maps was interesting because they show you where every country is.

I liked learning about how different our village was and how the shops and locations have changed.

I found the lessons about climate really interesting. We learnt about a range of different types of climate including tropical, polar and temperate.

We have looked at web cams across the world that show different places and time zones.
