S4 go Feature Spotting in Widnes

10th November 2020

S4’s new geography topic is about geography in their local area. The children went on a walk in their local area to discover significant places and landmarks within Widnes.  The children looked at human and physical features, businesses, facilities and places of worship. They then used a draft street map to label points of interest along the way.

In addition to this, the children had made poppies and a poppy wreath the week before the trip. When the children arrived at Victoria Park they laid their poppies and their wreaths at the Cenotaph. We looked at the various other wreaths that had been laid on Remembrance Sunday and reflected on why we celebrate Remembrance Day.
