Fieldwork week

Classes

Year 2 took part in fieldwork week by thinking about our local area.
 
We investigated our routes to school using Google maps and Digimaps and then created our own hand drawn maps complete with a key and symbols of our own creation.
 
Finally we went out into North Shields to look for examples of human and physical geography, record these using our tablets and see what places we thought were local wonders that everyone should be aware of. Northumberland park and the metro staton were two of our favourite places.
 
We had a great week improving our fieldwork skills and look forward to doing more work like this in the future.
