July 8th and 15th:
see the history page for tasks
Welcome Back to Summer Term 2 and…..Geography!
Scroll down for July work
June 16th: see below but check you've done this work from the last two weeks
First enjoy the 5 short videos from BBC Bitesize - from the link below - which are all about maps
Some of this will be familiar from the Autumn term.
Imagine you have the task of teaching these map skills and information to next year’s Year 6.
Create a PowerPoint that will interest and educate them.
You need to use all the terms below….
globe countries continents atlas
latitude longitude hemispheres Prime Meridian
compass points scale
symbols contours key
Success criteria =
Good: 5 slides with most terms used and illustrated
Very good : all terms used and illustrated
Excellent : AND includes what grid references are and how to understand them (you might remember this or will need to do your own research to remind you from the link below)
Below are links to help us explore maps
Ones from our local area
so that we can see how Southport has changed.
Use the close up map of the area around what would be the school in the 1840s.
Print out a copy of it.
Try to add features from today in their correct places (use the railway lines to help you). The 1880s map and Googlemaps will help too:
The school....our church....Lidl...Hampton Road and its footbridge over the railway...The Blue Anchor pub...South Garden Chinese takeaway
Some of the roads have changed their names. See if you can label where the following are -
Eastbank Street....Scarisbrick New Road...Virginia Street...Ash Street...Cemetery Road
Any of the residential streets near us that had not been built like
Arbour Street, Hargreaves Street, Hodson Street, Southbank Road,
Sefton Street, Linaker Street
Extracts from the above map of Southport from the 1840s
The first is an overview and the second is the area around what would be come the site of the school. There is no Hampton Road yet!
Below is a map showing how much Southport had grown by the 1880s - just 40 years later.
The second map is a close up of the area around the school.
June 23rd and July 1st
This is your chance to create a PowerPoint or leaflet or video about somewhere you love.
It can be one of the places from the BBC Bitesize links below or somewhere you've been or somewhere you would love to go.
Show off all the basic facts and show which are the human geography features (those that people have made) and those which are physical geography features (those made by or that are part of nature).
Really make it fabulous to look at.
Tell us what you can do there.
Show us about the scenery, the wildlife, the food...
Include lots of images.
