Inspirational Key Stage 2 geography specialist, Jane Whittle, leads her class on a magical journey through the school's own woods, in ‘KS1/2 Geography’.

The aim of the lesson is to create a map of their route but first, the children explore the woods picking up reminders of their experience along the way - leaves, moss, bottle tops, and so on which they fix to their own personal 'journey sticks'.

Armed with sellotape, drawing pins and tons of enthusiasm, Jane and her class explore the personal nature of geography, the countryside code and elements of map-making.
