We had a geography themed Funky Friday activity this morning with all children engaged with making different sorts of maps, using maps and carrying out research.
Class 1 made an outdoor giant scale model of the Scarborough coast and then drew maps of their construction. Class 2 made jigsaw maps of the United Kingdom.
In Key Stage 2, children chose an activity from the following:
make a pirate map and use grid references,
use google earth to find out out about different world features,
use atlases and the internet to find out about their favourite sports star's country and make a geography fact sheet,
use maps to do orienteering around the school grounds,
Zumba/Dance around the world and
look at maps from classic books eg the Hobbit to design and make their own imaginary kingdom!
