Today, 4CJ and 4EB combined some geography field skills with looking at place knowledge. We needed to complete an outstanding challenge to find facts about the UK and North America.
Year 4 were set the task to create a drawing of North America in groups. One they were happy with their Maria, the children use computer directions to guide their team mates to different areas.
The children really thought about the physical and human geography of Hawaii. Once we had 'visited' the island and we thought about what was around us using our different senses, the children wrote poems about the journey of a baby sea turtle across to the water.
Here are some fantastic examples of fact files of New York. The children watched videos and used the internet to research what tourists might want to see on a visit to the Big Apple and used this to create their pieces.
