This is a KS2 Geography unit designed for teaching about a contrasting UK locality. The area of study is Great Missenden, a village in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire, which was once home to famous children’s author Roald Dahl.
First the presentation introduces children to grid references and the Ordnance Survey website. It then challenges them to locate various geographical features in Great Missenden using 4-figure grid references (6-figure for UA).
In the activity, children again locate features of the village using grid-references. Additionally, there is an extension activity which revises compass directions.
The activity is differentiated three ways.
LA/MA - Locating features of Great Missenden using 4-figure grid references and compass directions.
UA - Locating features of Great Missenden using 6-figure grid references and compass directions.
