Topic: This week I would like you to explore key physical and human geographical features of your country.  Once you have found out some of the key features, I would like you to record them in a way that you like.  You may produce a poster, a booklet, a PowerPoint, a film.

Physical geographical features include:  climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts, rivers,
mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes, and the water cycle.

Human geographical features include: types of settlement and land use, economic activity
including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy,
food, minerals and water. 

There are some great videos and activities on the BBC Bitesize Geography section to help you,

RE. What Jesus did to save people?  Part 4.  This week I would like you to think about the story of David and Goliath.  This story is from the Old Testament of the Bible, in the book of Samuel.  Think about how the story relates to what Jesus taught us in the New Testament and can you see how it relates to our lives today?   Talk with your parents about the story.

Can you produce a comic strip to show the story of David and Goliath?

Can you create a comic strip with characters in the world today showing the meaning of the story?
