At Spilsby Primary, we teach Geography because we want to ensure that our children develop an understanding of the local and wider world around them and their location in it.  We want them to be aware of both physical and human features, natural phenomena and the changing environment around them, ensuring children have the vocabulary to talk about it confidently.  We also encourage our children to understand how land is used to ensure both human and animal survival and the impact of environmental issues and human factors. 

Y6 have plotted and recorded four and six figure grid references. They then used this to plot their won farmyard items to show physical and human geography.

A tricky Geography lesson this afternoon for year 3- needing some resilience with learning how to use grid references on a map!

Year 1 have been using their knowledge to identify the similarities and differences between London and Kuala Lumpur. We used the I pads to locate Kuala Lumpur and discussed its location compared to London. We then watch a video about Kuala Lumpur to gain some valuable knowledge to help us compare the similarities and differences.

In geography, the children had to identify human features of their local environment. So, both Year 2 classes joined together and walked around Spilsby searching for human features in the local area and checking them off of a list to see how many they could find.

Year 3 and 4 used the WWF resources to see the journey of a plastic straw from a picnic to a plate! Using these source materials as a startign point, the children then made an formative poster based on one of the 5R's and have thought about what we can do to help the pollution problem!

This afternoon, Year 2 looked at erosion by making sea walls from sand and stones to see which material eroded quicker!

Year 2 built up their map skills knowledge by looking at directions using North, East, South and West on a compass. They then had to identify the direction you would travel between different coastal towns and cities around the United Kingdom. Then, the children had to identify physical and human features on a map of Whitby using the key provided.

Year 1 have been learning all about the United Kingdom and how it is a group of islands surrounded by an expansive coastline. The children used maps, atlases and globes to identify the UK and the locations of the bodies of water that surround the UK.

Year 5 have been using a range of maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate minibeasts from around a the world.

Y3 loved using the 'flyover' feature with Google Maps to explore New York City and see all of the famous tourist attractions.

Year 1 and 2 are working together using iPads and knowledge organisers to find out about some important towers in the world 🗼

In Geography, Year 5 used an atlas to create a sketch map of Mexico, which included key geographical features.

In Geography this afternoon, Year 3 looked at maps of Ancient Greece and then labelled their own version with cities and mountains!

Lunchtime learning... Using our new wall map. Discovering where we live, where other countries are and most importantly, at this time of year, where Lapland is and how we would get there!

This afternoon in Geography, Year 3 looked at Fairtrade. They listed some Fairtrade products as well as creating a class definition.

Year 3 explored ‘odd’ foods from around the world this afternoon in geography. They located the origin countries on a map and then used a key to show what foods came from them!

In Geography, Year 5 looked at the locations of cities and towns heavily bombed during World War Two and explored why they were targeted.

Year 3 looked at the journey chocolate and bananas take to get to our local supermarket this afternoon. They used maps and the IPads to find out where the foods started their journey and how they were transported around the world.
