Year 6 Geography WOW DAY!
It was Peak Adventure last Friday as all children in Year 6 came in dressed as mountaineers and explorers! We combined elements of the geography, DT and PE curriculum throughout the day!
As a starting point to our topic, we learned about the five types of mountains and used this knowledge to junk model in groups. By the end of the morning we had created examples of each of these.
In the afternoon, the children used their knowledge of the compass, six figure grid references and clues to complete an orienteering course. The children collected letters which they had to unscramble at the end.
It was an enjoyable way to learn about how prepared we must be to navigate in the mountains.
