In our Geography lessons we aim to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. They will be using a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems. Fieldwork will be undertaken where possible to deepen children's understanding of the geographical process.
Geography is an enquiry led subject that seeks answers to fundamental questions such as:
- Where is this place?
- What is it like? (And why?)
- How and why is it changing?
- How does this place compare with other places?
- How and why are places connected?
As part of the heritage project Year 3 have been looking at maps of the Bramingham area. We found the shape of Great Bramingham wood, in maps going back to 1890. Our school wasn't there or many of our houses.
Year 4 have been looking at ordnance survey maps of Luton
Some great websites to look at at home.
Year 5 have been looking at time zones
Year 1 have used maps to find the capital cities of the countries in the UK. They also used their Brain builder homework to talk about places they have visited in the UK.
