Locational Knowledge

In Year Six the children were locating Brazil and Rio De Janerio. They used ipads to locate the countries and then using this information, went on to label their own maps.

In Year Three, children had to find Italy on a map. To begin their lesson, they used their prior knowledge to help them have an understanding of where Italy roughly was. They sang the continents song to help them remember. 

They used atlases and laptops to help them with their research. They found out about rivers, population, cities and mountain ranges. 

In Upper Key Stage 2 they looked at the invasion of the  Anglo Saxons, they had to label which countries they invaded and write what happened there. They had to use maps to help them find out where each country was.
