Geography

This week in Geography we have been learning about the 7 continents of the world.

We started by using Google Earth to view the earth and slowly zoomed further and further in until we found Merry Hill School. We had lots of answers to the question – Where are we? Ideas included England, on earth, Bushey, Hertfordshire, at school, in the United Kingdom and on the carpet.

The teachers told us that we also live on something called a continent. We learnt that a continent is a large solid area of land. They didn’t tell us what the 7 continents were called though – that was our job to investigate! We used atlases to find out and then used the iPads to label them on a map of the world.

Some of us also decided to spell out the names of the continents using the toys in our classrooms. Can you work out which continent they spell?
