Y6 learn Geography Fieldwork Skills

Y6 learn the skills of geographical fieldwork....up the road in Oadby!

on 1 March all of Y6 walked to Oadby and spent about two hours doing some proper geography fieldwork! It was linked to the unit they are studying in class on settlements and shopping. They conducted a land use survey (using map skills to locate shops on a map and noting down the type of shop). They also did a questionnaire, asking the public about their shopping habits as well as a traffic and pedestrian count. For some of them there was a little time at the end to do some shopping!
