The SuperSchemes series provides primary teachers with the means to develop geography units of work with confidence. Each book starts with:
advice and guidance on how to approach the topic
an explanation of the geography rooted in the unit
background information to get you started.

The whole suggested unit is laid out in the medium term plan, which is followed by detailed and resourced lesson plans for two lessons. Further ideas for developing the remaining four lessons in the unit complete the book and provide you with a springboard to take your geography teaching further.

This resource will enable all primary teachers to teach good geography about major world cities. The focus here is London, but the activities and ideas could be easily applied to an investigation of any city. The unit of six lessons aims to help pupils to understand the hierarchy of settlement, the physical features that underpin the development of major cities, and the role and needs of capital cities. Pupils will explore London’s population, historic location, weather and climate, and the role that attractions, transport, parks and the River Thames play in its popularity as a world-class tourist destination.

Resources, including activity sheets, PowerPoint presentations and a copy of the medium term plan, are available to download using your password included with the book.
