Comparing UK, European and North American Countries (31.03.23)

In class today, we have been exploring and researching information to compare three countries: one from the UK; one from a country in Europe; and a county in North America. First, we all learnt which countries are in the UK, Europe and North America and we chose a country from each to compare.


Our research was to compare physical (features created by nature - mountains, grass plains etc) and human features (houses, roads, bridges etc). Once we has found out our information, we displayed them in a three way Venn diagram to show which countries had similar features and which were unique to that country.

Ordnance Maps

In class, we have been exploring ordnance maps. We started looking at 4 digit grid references and developed into 6 digit grid references. We were challenged to locate a point on a map when given a grid reference and then given a landmark to supply a grid reference. We will move this on to look at contours to work where in Cheddon Fitzpaine would be the best site for an Iron Age hill fort.


Locating Major Cities of the Uk and Counties of England

As part of our Second World War topic, we are exploring why cities were targeted by German Airforces and then using our map skills to locate them.


We then looked in the regions that make up England. Some names where new to us.


Roman Empire - Trade Routes

The class have been looking into the trades routes of the Roman Empire which spread from India/ China all the way to Britain. They have seen what goods/ services they traded with which countries and what those countries/ cities are known as today.
