Learning in Autumn 1
During their trip to Hudnall Park, Year 2 learnt how to use simple compass directions whilst describing the location of features and routes on a map. They created this display to show all the learning they had done.
Year 3 have been learning about the world. They have used atlases to identify the Equator, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn and the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Year 4 have been building on the knowledge they gained in Year 3 when using atlases. They have been identifying the different hemispheres, the artic and antarctic circle as well as using lines of latitude and longitude to locate countries.
Year 4 and 6 have been developing their geography skills whilst at Hudnall park. Both classes learnt how to use a compass with Year 6 using bearing to help them complete an orienteering course.
