Learning at Stivichall is a passport for life

Some Geography areas all children could continue to build on are:

1. Place Knowledge - through exploring atlases and maps (online or resources at home if they have them e.g. globes, maps), Google Earth, web research

2. Human and Physical features - online web pages, Google Earth and observations whilst they are out exercising in their community

3. Field study skills such as map work - online websites, resources at home e.g. maps and atlases

Make a treasure map for your house or garden - remember to hide the treasure ... can your parent or sibling find it using your map alone?
