Class 1 – Where are the best places to play in our community?
As part of National Fieldwork week, we decided to look around our local community to find the safest and most enjoyable place to play in our village. We put the question to the children and they wrote a list of 4 places that they thought would be good to explore; Nettlesworth Park, The Community Centre, The Forest & Kimblesworth Park.
We used a large map to navigate our way around the village to the different places we suggested and when we got back to school we recorded our opinions in a pictograms, tally chart and bar chart. The pace with the most votes (11) was Kimblesworth Park and here are some of the reasons why:
* It has a big fence around it and a gate so we are safe when playing,
* This park isn’t near a busy road,
* It’s got lots of things to play on and a basketball court and a big field for picnics,
* It has bins and not much litter on the floor.
Great work class 1 🗺
Class 2 – Walk to Waldridge Fell
We all had so much fun walking over the fell as part of our National Fieldwork week work. We looked at all of the natural and man made things that we could see. We loved looking at the school from afar and also spotted lots of houses. We enjoyed spending 10 minutes stilling and using all of our senses to explore the world around us.
Class 3 – Treasure hunt…
Class 3 had a fun geography lesson this week, for National Fieldwork Week. We created our very own treasure maps, adding all of the features we have been covering across the year and a route for our partners to follow. We then went outside and challenged our friends to find our hidden treasure, marked on our maps. We all managed to find each others treasure and were able to accurately use the maps and follow the routes.
