CHOCOLATE YEAR 6 TRANSITION UNIT
VIEW PROMO VIDEO
This unit of six lessons is designed for use with Y6 post-SATs.
It is designed to:
• provide a new and fully resourced topic for Y6
• engage children with a topic that is relevant to them all
• make links between their world and the wider world
• act as a bridge between KS2 and KS3 (through the “key concepts”)
• create opportunities for children to develop as young geographers
• provide a context for studying Fairtrade issues
Why do a transition unit in geog?
It is hoped that this unit will:
• help to establish links between primary and secondary geography
• help to give children from different schools a common area of knowledge and understanding, that can be referred to and built upon
• help introduce Y6 students to the “key concepts” below that will underpin their geography at KS3 in the new secondary geography curriculum from September 2008.
