Mr King - Class 5 2019 - 2020

Mr King

Welcome to Class 5's webpage.

In the 2nd half of the spring term the children have loved learning about maps. They have been finding out about climate in diferrent regions of the planet and identifying countries which lie on The Equator, The Tropic of Cancer and The Tropic of Capricorn. They have developed their atlas skills by reading grid references and have also been learning about capital cities around the world. Year 4 children went on a two night residential to Hawse End Activity Centre on Derwent Water where they used maps to find features in the real world in order to navigate a hike up Cat Bells. They learnt to orientate a map properly to complete an orienteering course around the centre. Other activities included archery and ghyll scrambling.  Overall, they loved experiencing the great outdoors in their locality.
