UK Geography and Living Species

Year 6 came back after the Easter break in fine form! They have had a super start to their last term at Kingsleigh Primary School. The first couple of weeks have seen the children investigate Physical and Human Geography, as well as classifying living species in Science. Year 6 enjoyed these areas of learning, and presented their work beautifully. It was great to see them all so engrossed in their learning once more, and for us to see them demonstrate intrigue from start to finish.

In Geography, maps of the UK were used as our learning tool. The children began by using an atlas to see where certain locations were in comparison to sunny Bournemouth. This resulted in capital cities being labelled clearly. Following on from this, mountain ranges were researched and investigated. Once knowledge had been gained, and confidence grew, the children began to complete their ‘Key’ and then finish by highlighting the physical features on their maps. Below is one of many fine examples that were on show…

Once confident in their answers, they went about presenting their work neatly and precisely. A sentence or two accompanied their findings to justify their conclusions. Below are three examples of many that Year 6 produced…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was wonderful to see how quickly the children regained focus after the Easter break. They have been brilliantly behaved and totally committed to all areas of their learning. We are so proud of  every single one of them. We look forward to sharing many more examples as we venture through our  Summer term.
