Year 4 and 5 have been continuing their cartography work making and modifying their maps. Today they turned their attention to the global, revisiting (or visiting for the first time in the case of Y3) the important geographic concepts of continents, oceans, Northern and Southern Hemisphere and the Equator. Children have been using a range of maps to identify the major rivers of the world. Having done this correctly, children have been adding careful colour to the maps.
