We are going to be learning lots of Geography skills through the unit called Villages, Towns and Cities.

Our first lesson is called Where are the world’s people? You can start the lesson by clicking on the link below. You will only need paper, a pencil and your brain for the lesson. The lesson is about 35 minutes long so you may want to pause it half way along for a short movement break and to give your eyes a rest from looking at a screen. The lesson is supposed to start with a quiz however at the time of watching the lesson I could only find the quiz at the end so please do not worry about the quiz at the start. Enjoy your lesson with Mr Hutchinson!


At school Whitebeam will be having their weekly  PE lesson so if you didn't  joined Joe Wicks this morning why not try out his fitness session or try a yoga session at ‘Cosmic Kids Yoga’ also on YouTube. There are lots of different routines to choose from.
