Year 6 recently had the opportunity to take their learning out of their own classrooms and over the bridge.
Our children were welcomed into An Phu Secondary where the Geography Department had laid out their new giant world map for us to investigate.
This gave the pupils in Year 6 the chance to look in much finer detail at the continents of the world and in particular the great rivers which wind their way through these continents. We took string and metre rulers to measure the lengths of the rivers and then used the accompanying scale to determine the actual length of each of these major rivers. It is not often that we have the opportunity to do a proper geographical investigation on a map of this size, so we are very grateful for the experience and would like to thank the Geography Department at AP2.
