This term in Geography we have been looking at our school grounds. We have been learning how to use maps, practicing the use of directional language and sharing our opinion of the playground.

All Geographers have curiosity about the world and the people in it.

First, we learnt the word ‘aerial’ and then produced a messy map of an aerial view of the classroom.

We then spent time in the forest designing aerial maps of the forest school.

Finally we have been offering our opinion of the playground and discussing how we could improve it.

How you can help at home:

  • Make your own map of your bedroom.
  • Make a questionnaire for your friends about how to improve your local park.
  • Practise using directional language on your way to school/on the way home.
