5Red Geography Day out

Wow what a fantastic day at Stratford.
We looked at the famous William Shakespeare’s statue and his home. We completed a field sketch of the human features of the high street. Whilst in the town we compared the local architecture within Stratford to Coventry. There was more carvings within the wood within Stratford Tudor houses.
Then we completed a Traffic survey and recorded the results as a tally chart. We will produce a comparison with Coventry over next few days.
After lunch we looked at physical features of Stratford and completed our second field sketch. We then investigated litter. It became apparent that there was no litter in Stratford and the children were very shocked by this. Finally we stood in the grandstand and could hear the amplification of our voices.

All children were very well behaved and showed respect to all they met.
