The Lake District 


As part of our work on the Lake District, we created a digital map to show our understanding of some of the amazing features of the UK's largest National Park. Did you know a National Park is an area of countryside which is protected by the government either for the enjoyment of the public or for the protection of wildlife? 



In October, Year 3 visited PGL where they used their geographical skills as part of their daily activities. 


The children used their map reading skills during their day time orienteering activity as well as during one of the evening activities which required them to read a map in order to find a range of world maps located around the site. This activity also helped the children develop their knowledge and understanding of world maps and the countries they belong to.
