Wymondham Geography Walk

To support our learning about Ordnance Survey maps and local geography, Year 5 went on a walk through Wymondham.  We started at school, crossed over Browick Road, then cut through to Norwich Road where we used the pedestrian crossing.  Then, we walked up Bridewell Street and down Market street, before going up Damgate Street to the River Tiffey.  On the way, we discussed human and physical features and land heights, particularly noting how the land rises and falls as you approach and leave the Market Cross.  Damgate Street itself also rises as you walk up it and when we reached the Tiffey valley, the children were quite interested to see how the land height was higher on either side of the river.  You can see this on the topographical map below, which we took with us.

We also looked out for various examples of human and physical features along the path beside the river and discussed the impact humans have had upon the area.  The children were so studious when looking at their maps and they enjoyed comparing what the land looked like on the map with what it looked like in real life.

The children all had a wonderful time and behaved impeccably!
