Ocean set key stage one a mission. She wanted to go travelling around the United Kingdom looking at castles but did not know where they were in the UK. The children had to label the countries and then put the correct castle where it belongs. 

In Lower Key Stage 2, they looked at finding countries and cities with the UK. They used maps to help them with their work and learnt how to read them properly. 
In LKS2 children looked at the human and physical features similarities and differences between the UK and and America. 

In Year 3 they looked at Germany and thought about its human features. They then located it on a map and wrote a little about the different features and what they look like. 


In Key Stage one there was a focus on their local area (Leeds). Children used the ipads and the website 2purple mash" to sort through human and physical features of Leeds. They then chose two areas from the city and compared them, looking at their purpose, history and appearance.
