'What makes Mexico
This unit is a comparative unit between where we live and Mexico. The children will use atlases and globes to discover about the world, including the seven continents and five oceans, the countries, capital cities and surrounding seas of the UK and the equator and poles. Children will develop fieldwork and map skills creating maps of the school and their local area. Children will learn the geographical human and physical features of Tulum in Mexico and compare them to the geographical features of their own local area. We will learn about Mexican culture, traditions and festivals. The children will make and taste traditional Mexican food, comparing it to well loved British food. In art, we will study about a famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo as well as well known local artists Barbara Hepworth and John Dyer.
