Geography - we're currently learning all about Spain and Catalonia.
Look at a world map. Can you find the UK? Can you locate Spain? Do you know which continent both of these countries are part of?
Identify Spain’s bordering countries, including the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. Look at the surrounding oceans and seas, and locate the capital city of Madrid together.
Look at the location of the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands. Explain that these a still a part of Spain even though they are not part of the mainland.
Finding out about the physical geography of Spain today. What does this mean? Explain that the term physical geography is used to describe the natural features and landscape of an area or country.
Look at Spain’s coastlines, rivers and mountainous regions. Look at some pictures of coastal areas in Spain, and encourage to describe what they can see with geographical vocabulary. Show these coastal locations on a map. Show the main rivers in Spain and their location on a map. Discuss the physical geography of the river Tagus and the river Ebro, and how they are used differently. Contrast this with pictures of the Pyrenees. Explain that this is a mountain range which separates Spain from France. Show this on a map. Again, encourage to describe what they can see using geographical vocabulary.
Looking at the human geography of Spain. What do you think this means? Explain that it is about how humans interact with their environment. It includes aspects such as communities, culture, land use and trade links. Today they are going to explore the human geography of Spain by looking at different aspects of Spanish culture; food, festivals, music and dance, famous buildings and Madrid.
Children could then research and create a powerpoint presentation, poster or leaflet.
