Good afternoon Year 6! I hope you are feeling ready to learn and are happy to be back in your learning routine.


This afternoon you are going to begin with a Spanish lesson. You will then have a look at some Geography.

Picture 1

This activity will revise 'In my city...' (a topic you looked at with Ms Pizzigoni).
If you need help you can use the following website or YouTube video to help you:

Places in the City in Spanish

A mini-lesson on how to say places in the city in Spanish.

Complete the following two sheets: 
Picture 1
Picture 2

You can also use this website to play games and revise your Spanish vocabulary. Take a little time now to explore this website. Try to play games linked to the topic of your lesson. For example, today you should click on 'Places'.



LI: To revise my knowledge of settlements and to compare cities in different countries.


Your lesson today will mainly be following this page of the BBC bitesize website.

You should remember watching this video in class when we were studying Chembakolli and comparing it to Port Sunlight. Watch the video and read the information to recap this and to be sure that it is clear in your mind.


Warm up activity:

Look in particular at the section with the heading 'Types of settlement' (below). As you read through the definitions, see if you can think of, and write down, any examples that you may have read about, heard of, or even visited!


  • hamlet is a very small settlement with just a group of houses.
  • village is also small but may have houses, a primary school, a few shops, a Post Office and a village hall.
  • town is larger than a village, with lots of houses, primary and secondary schools, as well as sometimes having a railway station and shopping centre.
  • city is the largest type of settlement, containing lots of buildings and lots of people. They usually have hospitals, sports facilities, universities, shops, offices, many houses and a cathedral.


Some settlements also have a special use, or function. For example:

  • ports - by a river or sea for ships to transport goods
  • market towns - where local farmers sell goods
  • resorts - for people to go on holiday

For example:

Miss Hesketh's mum and dad live in a village.

We visited a village called Port Sunlight on a school trip.

Liverpool had an important role as a port during the World War.

On holiday, I went to a resort near to the town of Benidorm in Spain.


Now complete Activity 1 and Activity 2 on the website.


1. What are the differences between Tokyo and London?

After watching the video above make a list of the differences between the two cities of Tokyo and London. How many can you find?


2. Play the short game and identify the types of settlement.
