Outdoor Geography Fun!

Today, we embraced the sunshine to take our geography learning outdoors! ☀️ The children were tasked with finding the best settlement site, from our school surroundings, building upon all of their prior learning. Here are some reflections to showcase their fantastic findings.

 

'My settlement had water, defence and food. My settlement was near the pond, although that does present the risk of flooding.' (Dylan, Year 4)

 

'My settlement was good because it was up high so we could see enemies approaching. There was lots of water and food nearby.' (Max, Year 4)

 

'Our settlement was good because it was close to water, but not too close for flooding. There was lots of space for farmland, shelter and we were high up to see enemies! (Ayla, Year 4)

 

'I think my settlement would come in handy: it has shelter, water (which is not that far away), food and farmland. Next time, I would make sure there is greater defence!' (Mary, Year 4)

 

'Our settlement was effective because we were near farmland and there was lots of shelter. We had walls and quick transport links. We are luckily near a water supply and had entertainment (e.g. slide, pole, climbing frame). We were also off ground, which helps us see any intruders so we can prepare.' (Bella, Year 4)

George did make it to school on Monday! 😃 🎯
