We held our Geography Day on Tuesday, 3rd July. The theme this year was Recycling. The children and staff enjoyed an active and exciting day of Geography-based activities.
We had a whole school assembly and Angela James, Education Officer with Veolia, came and talked to the children about the importance of recycling.
Year 6 did map work, pinpointing countries, Capital cities, major rivers and mountain ranges in Europe and the UK.
Year 5 made a range of shelters from recyclable materials.
Year 1 read about the superhero "Michael Recycle" and designed and made superheroes from recyclable materials. After Assembly they made ‘Earth’ crafts eg. dream catchers, collages etc and wrote promises, reflecting how they would help the planet.
Year 3 learned about rivers; in French, Madame Jones taught them about the rivers of France and Mrs Butler based her activities on the rivers of the UK. The children visited the banks of the river Severn and learned about its journey from source to mouth.
Year 2 enjoyed a vexillological afternoon designing and making their own country and flag.
Early Years were learning about their local area. They explored Shrewsbury using Google Earth. In the afternoon they climbed the hill on our field and identified several landmarks that they had been learning about in class. They are due to go on a school trip to learn more about Shrewsbury next week.
