Take a look at what Y3 have created during Geography Week!
Before half term, year 4 enjoyed learning about coastal features. They carried out research into how different coastal features are formed and how they are protected. We had some brilliant pieces of work produced which persuaded people to visit South Shields. The children thought about the different human and physical features which they thought people would like to see.
During geography week, while working at home, the children were given work to research the local area of South Shields. This included looking at different industries that have been present in South Shields at different time periods, looking at natural features of the area and famous people who came from our area. Some work completed handwritten, others have used internet images and their own drawings to make a PowerPoint. Here are some excellent examples that the children have shared:

Year 3 Geography Week Tasks for this week! Enjoy this Geography project to create your own country and look at all different landmarks, cities, towns and physical features of the world. Then lead onto your Geography twist of a bake off with your classmates! We can’t wait to see some of your creations!
Year 3 have been doing lots of research this week to learn all about the United Kingdom.They used Google Earth to find capital cities then researched famous landmarks. They then invented their own landmarks and created them. I’m sure you’ll agree they are very impressive!
Earlier this year, Year 4 investigated different countries in Europe. We used atlases to identify the countries and their capital cities. We then focused on France. We looked at landmarks there and compared life in different parts of the country.
Y3 have been looking at the UK and which rivers flow through it. We have been learning how to use co-ordinates to find rivers and then follow them to see which Sea they flow into.
We then moved onto finding out the difference between a Country and a County. We looked at different counties throughout the UK then focused on our own County ‘Tyne and Wear’ to find out what is local to us, what we are famous for and which rivers pass through our County.
Our favourite celebrities of course were Ant and Dec!
Y3 have been set a project by their teachers this week to research and create an information booklet of different Rainforests around the world – particularly looking at the meaning of deforestation, the animals, plants and habitats.
Today Mrs Langley set them all a Challenge as part of their Rainforest afternoon project…
Watch this space for pictures produced by our fabulous Y3 children at home of their favourite Rainforest animal!
We are loving the enthusiasm of all our Children and Parents – Thank You and we hope your enjoying your daily challenges!
