Geography Day - May 2017

On Thursday 25th May, the whole school took part in an exciting Geography Day!


We all carried out a wide range of activities such as orienteering and brushing up on our place knowledge of the world!


We also all carried out a data collection activity where we came to school in our own clothes and found out from the label where the clothes had been made.


Have a look at the photos below to see what each class did!

Year 3, looked at Continents and flags of the World and produced tally charts of where our clothes were from. We were surprised with the results.

Yasmine year 3 - 'On geography day I enjoyed singing the continent song'.

Year 6 looked at a short video from The Literacy Shed about a farmer who planted windmills. He watered and looked after them but then a storm came and destroyed them! Here is a link to the video we watched and here are some of our stories and diary entries about The Windmill Farmer.
