Design a map of your bedroom or our classroom. This needs to be in a bird's eye view (looking down). Make sure you draw where the key features are, including the door, bed and any other furniture you have in your room. Think carefully about the size of your items and where they need to go. Also think about the shape of your room.


Look at the examples below to help you.


Draw a key so you know what each picture is.


You can use the squared paper below to help you draw it.

An alien has just moved to the Milky Way from a different universe. Can you create a map of our solar system so they know where the planets are and their correct order.

Remember the rhyme we did in class to help you to know the order of the planets (Clue - It starts with My).


Challenge - Add interesting facts about each planet to give the Alien more information. 


You can use the sheet below or design your own.


I look forward to seeing your Solar System maps.

24th March 2020

In Geography today, you are going to design your own planet. It is a brand new planet that you have just discovered!

Think about:

  • What it looks like
  • What is it called? 
  • Who lives there?
  • Does it have oxygen, water, plants, trees, humans?
  • What is it made of? Is the ground hard?
  • Does it have any moons?

You have a copy of the activity sheet in your home learning pack. 


I have attached it underneath, if you need an extra copy.


I look forward to seeing the fantastic planets you discover!
