Geography

Our geography learning- Term 5

In geography this term, we are carrying out fieldwork. We will learn about maps and how to follow them. We will also look at a range of aerial photos and look for human and physical features. Finally, we will be exploring our local area and making a map of the land use around our school.

TERM 3

This term, we are going on a journey from Edinburgh to Mexico City!

We have started by finding Whitfield on a map and planning our journey to Edinburgh. We have asked some geographical questions, including; how hot is it in Edinburgh? How many people live in Edinburgh?

 

Here is the knowledge we will be learning this term.

 

After we found where we live on a map, we got a train ticket and hopped on a train to travel to Edinburgh. We learnt about what life is like in Edinburgh and some of the landmarks and features we might see. 

After we had spent some time in Edinburgh and learnt about the human and physical features, we hopped on a plane and flew to Mexico City. We found Mexico on a map and described the direction from Edinburgh to Mexico.

We then noticed that Mexico is closer to the equator so we know it will be hotter there than in Edinburgh.

After learning about Mexico City and Edinburgh, we had a debate about where we would like to visit.

 

Poppy, "I would like to visit Mexico City because of the mountains."

We spoke about other physical features in Mexico City.

Orla, "I would like to go to Mexico City to try their food."

Liam, "I would go to Mexico City to see how big their buildings are."

Reggie and Oscar, "I would like to go to Mexico City because of the weather."

Lucas, "I would like to go to Mexico City to see how big the mountains are."

Isla, "I would like to go to Mexico City because I really need a day with heat."

 

George, "I would like to visit Edinburgh because of the mountains."

Harry, "I would like to go to Edinburgh Castle and stand on Arthur's Seat."

Gracie, "I would like to go to Edinburgh to see how many people there are."

Ellie, "I would like to go to Edinburgh to see the mountains."

Jasmine, "I would go to Edinburgh because I really like the pool they have."

Jayson, "I would like to go to Edinburgh to see how they talk."

 

Our vote was:

Edinburgh- 5

Mexico City- 15
