In Geography this week the children in Class 1 have been exploring our school and their locality and making maps.
Class 2 have been looking at images of the world at night. Using the patterns of light, we located the brightly lit cities in the United Kingdom on Google Earth.
Class 2's geography task over the past two weeks has been to carry out a survey. We wanted to know more about what people at home do for a living. A lot of us asked specific questions at home and as a class we were able to collate this information, making a tally chart. It was necessary to create categories for the different jobs due to there being such a wide range. We worked very hard to display this information in graphs and in addition to discussing the job types, we also explored how far people travel to work. The greatest distance was 150 miles!
In geography, Year 5 and 6 labelled a map of Mexico with the states and notable cities. They looked at where Mexico is in relation to other countries of the world.
Great map work from our explorers in Class 3- using atlases, maps and photographs to analyse Egypt.
