Fieldwork in Year 3
Compasses, exploring and finding out about our local area: Year 3 Geographers are out in the field!
This half term, Year 3 are looking at mapping and fieldwork.
We have learned the points on a compass and what human and physical features are.
As our Geography Curriculum Vision is:
Be an explorer - Be global - Be outside.
It meant we had to take our new learning outside!
We had the chance to do some fieldwork in the local environment, using our compasses to guide us whilst we classified features we saw as human or physical.
We are looking forward to using Digimaps to view features of our local environment from a different vantage point next week!
Until then, do you think you know why we found more human features than physical ones during our fieldtrip?
