Three Peaks

As part of our Shape of the UK topic, we have been studying the largest peaks in Great Britain – Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike. We looked at the 3 Peaks Challenge and researched the information a participant may need to complete this challenge. We then built each mountain and created a 3d model of the peaks.

Why do we live here? We live in the county of Kent – the garden of England, home to Charles Dickens and the main area for growing hazelnuts in the UK! The first ever James Bond book was written down the road in St. Margarets and we are the gateway to Europe being just 21 miles away from Calais in France. Where do other people live? Do you know anything about the other counties of the UK or how our country is divided up? As developing geographers, we will consider the shape of the UK as we travel from South further North. Along the way, we will practice our skills in map reading through the use of OS maps, Google Earth and atlases.  You will be so inspired by the wonderful and diverse shape of the UK you will want to discover so many of these extraordinary places in the future

We began our work on our new topic of The Shape of the UK with our learning lift-off. We were given a piece of Play-doh each and had to build what we thought the UK looked like.
