Geography

Geography is important to show our children the world outside Cashes Green and to encourage them to explore the wonders of the wider world. We also want to help them understand the impact of their actions on the world. We hope to inspire them to look after our planet and to appreciate and respect the differences between people, places and cultures.

Hello Geographers!

I hope you have been enjoying the outdoors this week! Logan in Year 4 has been learning all about time zones and Alfie in Year 3 has used his Geography and art skills to create this masterpiece:

KS1 Challenge

This week, I would like you to be a weather watcher. Watch the clip on this website to see how data can be collected using Geography equipment. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9g87ty

I know you probably don't have the equipment they have at home but you can still be a weather watcher! Use this sheet to make observations and collect your data every day for a week. 

KS2 Challenge

In KS2, your challenge this week is all about compasses. If you've forgotten how compasses work, take a look at the video clip on this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/maths-ks2-using-compass-and-reading-maps/z77tf4j

Once you have seen the video, you can have a go at making your own time capsule! Living in lock-down will be a significant part of human history - and you will be part of it! After you've made a time capsule, hide it somewhere and have a go at creating your own map to help you find it again.

To practice your compass skills, have a go at this worksheet.

Good luck and have fun!

Hello Geographers!

Hayden in Year 3, Gabriella in Year 5, McKenzie in Year 2, Logan in Year 4 and Blake In Reception are on a roll with their Geography. I must say, I am super impressed with the effort that has been put in. Have a look below and tell me what you think:

KS1 Challenge:

KS1 Geographers, you have a choice of two challenges this week! I have found a game which will test your Geography know-how. Click on this link to have a go: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvsd8xs/articles/z6vyf4j

 

Or you can watch this clip all about Barnaby going on a ramble: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zyrd2hv

Maybe you and your family can go on a ramble and look for fairies? Or take pictures of things you see like trees, leaves, feathers, sticks, birds, minibeats... or anything special you find! I would love to hear about your expedition into the wilderness and see all the things you see/hear/feel/smell/taste!

KS2 Challenge:

This week, we are going to be learning all about time zones.

Watch the clip on this webpage: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z48fvk7 

Then have a go at the quiz at the bottom to see how well you've learnt about time zones. For an extra challenge, have a go at this time zone activity below.

The answers are in the same document so make sure you don't peek until you check your answers at the end!

Good luck! I can't wait to see all your Geography work.

Hello Cashes Green Geographers!

We have had another week of brilliant Geography work. Check out the work by Hayden in Year 6, Millie in Year 3, Logan in Year 4 and Blake in Reception. Great work guys!

 KS1 Challenge:

Have a go at writing the correct continents in the correct labels. If you need some help, you can use Digimaps or Google Maps to help you. The answers are on the second page of the document... but no peeking until you have finished!

KS2 Challenge:

For your challenge this week, I would like you to head to this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjdm6v4

Watch the short film that will teach you how to use contours, keys and symbols to read a map. Then watch the clip all about maps and how we use them. 

Have a go at the game under Activity 1.

If you're up to the challenge, try out Activity 2. You can make your own contour island! The instructions are below.

Good luck! I can't wait to see all your hard work.

Hello Cashes Green Geographers!

Before I announce the next Geography challenge, I need to showcase some brilliant Geography work from Kai in Year 6:

KS1 Challenge:

Have a look at this powerpoint from the Go Jetters all about landmarks:

Now using the facts you can find on this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-go-jetters-uk-places-and-landmarks/zkyjkmn can you draw the famous UK landmarks and write a fact about each one?

KS2 Challenge

Take a look at the First News reading comprehension. It has news from around the world! Can you answer the comprehension questions underneath? If you find this task a bit too tricky, then have a go at the KS1 challenge instead.
