Spruce Class

YEAR 5

 

 Our class teacher is Tom Pugh our teaching assistant is Clare Mooney

 

 

This half term, our topic is

LOCAL GEOGRAPHY IN ACTION

 

From our immersion, we have discovered that some children already know that...

 

  • St Albans, Hemel and Hatfield are all places in Hertfordshire
  • different types of map are used for different purposes
  • St Albans has some of the busiest roads in Britain including the M1 and M25
  • cars are not good for the environment and cause pollution 

 

So we have decided as a class that we want to ...

 

  • research road use around the school by completing surveys of the area
  • understand what air pollution is, how it affects us and what we can do to alleviate it
  • make recommendations about changes to improve safety and air quality in our local area

 

As part of our topic, we investigated different maps of the local area: located towns in Hertfordshire, used compass directions to orientate ourselves and gave directions using road maps.
