Locational Knowledge

In our Geography lessons, Year 5 have been finding out more about the continent of Europe.  We have been using atlases to locate some of the main countries in Europe.

Beech class have been finding out about capital cities of Europe.  We first of all thought about what makes a city a capital city and then we worked in groups to try and solve the anagrams of different European capitals.  We now know a lot more than we did before!

As part of our new topic of 'Brazil', Year 5 have been using atlases to zoom in on the continent of South America.  We located Brazil and then had the challenge to find out the ten countries that border Brazil.  We also located some of Brazil's major cities and discovered more about its different eco-systems.  We are looking forward to using digital mapping, including Google Earth to discover more about this fascinating place.

Here are some interesting facts we have discovered so far about Brazil....

We worked in teams to explore capital cities of Europe.  Mrs Casey gave us a variety of European flags and we first had to identify which country the flag represented.  We then had to locate the country in an atlas and find out what the capital city was.  We could present our work how we decided.  Some capitals were easier than others!  
Lower Key Stage 2 begun their Lake District topic by working in groups to explore different photos from the region.  We looked closely at the photos for clues that would tell us more about the region.  We came up with some super what, where, when, why and how questions that we had about the photographs.  We are looking forward to learning more all about the Geography of this fascinating place.
