Autumn 1 - What is a monarch?


Finding out the role of a monarch, children compare the monarchy today with the monarchy in the past. Pupils investigate how William the Conqueror became King and learn how he used castles to rule. They study different types of castles and consider how these evolved over time.


Autumn 2 - Would you like to live somewhere hot or cold?


Using a map, children will become confident in finding the seven continents, North and South poles, the Equator and identify the climate of a country based on where they are located in the world.
