Aerial view!

2P have been learning how aerial views can be used to draw maps. We used an aerial image of our school and then used a ruler and pencils to carefully draw the lines to create our own map. We added some labels and some symbols. We did a great job! Take a look at David’s beautiful work:

Human or Physical?

2P has been learning about the two main types of Geography; human and physical. We now know the difference between each different type. We then used our skills to identify these features in locations around Doncaster. We concluded that Doncaster is mainly made up of human features but we agreed we need more physical features as well!

Messy maps!

2P have been learning about the difference between aerial views and aerial plans. We used this knowledge to make ‘messy maps’ of our classroom using different resources. It was really tricky trying to remember to look down from the ceiling but after much grappling, we began to create the shapes we needed. Great geography work 2P!

1M Fieldwork Hook around Intake

Our day two hook was an active walk through Intake, our local community. We explored some of Intakes landmarks and found out some historic information about Danum Secondary School, Sandall Beat Woods, Doncaster Racecourse and Doncaster Deaf Trust. Thank you to the parent helpers for your support and well done to all of the children who walked, talked, asked and answered lots of questions – linking to our previous expeditions as well as our current expedition!
