In Geography we have been learning about West Yorkshire. We have been really busy creating maps to show the different towns and cities in West Yorkshire, as well as famous landmarks. As well as looking at the local area we also located different counties and towns in the UK in order for us to understand where we were in relation to other parts of the country.
We have also looked closely at how land use in the local area has changed over time. We studied a map from 1949 and a map from today. We then made comparisons of the land usage in the local area.
In Year 6 we got the chance to do one of our Geography lessons outside. We completed an orienteering activity. We had to use the eight points on a compass to locate different check points. At each check point there were clues that told us where we needed to got next.
