Dear Parents and Carers,

This term we shall we learning about the geography of the Great Plains of North America. In order to support their learning in class it would be great if the children could spend a bit of time looking at some of the web links below. The children will be writing persuasively about the Great Plains so any information they can find about the climate, landscape and important sites would be fantastic!

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Single & Mrs Hall
