In our initial topic, we are going to focus on our local area. We will explore:
Four-figure grid references
In our Geography lessons, we have been learning how to pinpoint locations using six-figure grid references. We have learnt that the vertical lines are called eastings and the horizontal lines are called northings.
To help us remember how to find out the grid reference, we used the saying "Along the corridor and up the stairs," as you have to give the easting first.
Human and Physical Features
Our next stage of learning focused on the human and physical features in Malvern. We established that there are now a lot more human features in Malvern than physical features as there is a lot of development.
A human feature are those made by humans and which humans have changed or influenced.
A physical feature is a natural feature of the earth.
