Sharpening Up Our Geography Skills
The whole of Ranelagh have sharpened up their geography skills this term. Children from year 3 have been observing the land in West Ham Park to develop their geography skills. They've identified and recorded human and physical features in the local area and created sketch maps using the information. Emrys from 3M2 said, “It was fun and exciting, like a quest, because we were using directions (NESW) and made our own map.”
Year 5 walked the Greenway to Three Mills Lock to observe and discuss land-use patterns and how they have changed over time. The children discussed how the River Lea was polluted in the past. They measured PH levels to check how clean the water is today.
Ask your child about what they have learned, or take them to these places which are so close by.
