Realised that I’d skipped Derbyshire on our journey around England with our Geography group so we backtracked.

Derbyshire=Peak District in my mind.

We looked at a relief map of England and discussed how it worked with the different colours.  Compared to Scotland and Wales and decided England is flat and Wales is Epic!

Then we made salt dough maps.

I’d photocopied a map of England and cut it out and glued it on card for each child.  They covered it in a thin layer of salt dough and then built up the relief based on the map.

There followed some general playing with dough.
