Geography Orienteering end of unit

KS1 finished their geography learning on The United Kingdom this week with an exciting end of unit task.

We used simple fieldwork skills to study the geography of our school and its grounds. As we have learnt about the United Kingdom we created the United Kingdom map on our playground. We used compass directions to move to the different countries in the UK. We used observational skills to say what we could see in each country.

  • “The buddy bench is in Northern Ireland which is in the west of the UK” – Lottie
