This half term, our topic is

Local Geography in Action



Our topic for this half term will be ‘Local Geography in Action’

From our immersion we have discovered that some children already know that:

  • maps tell us how we can reach different places
  • we use electronic navigation (Google maps/GPS) increasingly rather than road atlases
  • different kinds of maps have different uses
  • St Albans is in Hertfordshire which is north of London


So we have decided as a class that we want to find out and do the following:

  • identify road use, features of roads, traffic flow and causes of congestion
  • investigate pollution and consider solutions
  • create our own maps of familiar routes
  • conduct surveys of road use and make recommendations for improvement.
