Geography Fieldwork in Year 5

Today, Year 5 began this year’s geography fieldwork project.

Fieldwork is when you go outside the classroom and find things out for yourself. 

We wanted to find out the answer to a question. Does Morthen road need a zebra crossing?

So, all day we have been going out in groups to count the traffic on Morthen Road.  We went out for ten minutes every hour and created tally charts to record our results. This is called time sampling. We will interrogate our results and use them to answer our question.
