Throughout all of our topics we link in as many different subject areas as possible (eg: Art, DT, music) to create a cross curricular approach to learning.

Home Learning Project


As well as using the home learning sites and activities for Key Stage 2, pupils in Year 4 can also undertake a project (if they wish) to finish the 'Our Local Area' topic for this half term. 


Key questions to consider:

  • Why do people choose to live in Balderton/Fernwood?
  • Where might people work if they live here?
  • What amenities might they use?


Learning Objectives:

  • describe and understand key aspects of: human geography, including: types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water
  • use fieldwork to observe, measure and record the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods, including sketch maps, plans and graphs, and digital technologies.



Think about why people live in Balderton/Fernwood and what they like about it. Are there any amenities that are missing? Take on the role of a town planner and imagine you had the money and resources to provide a major new development. 


  • Draw/create a plan for your new development, thinking carefully about residential, leisure and commercial areas.
  • Think about where each amenity will be, who will use it and how much it might cost to build.
  • Prepare a convincing presentation as to why your idea is the best.


We look forward to seeing your finished projects!


Useful things to remember:
