Marvellous Map Reading in Year 2!
Wednesday 27th April | 1 comment
As part of our geography curriculum we have been learning all about maps.
The children have been learning how to orientate maps and negotiated their way around a set route using the compass directions North, South, East and West.
We then used an aerial photograph of the school farm to located key features. The children visited the different places on the photo and orientated the photo to find where they were on the photo.
Following this, the children did some simple orienteering using a map of the farm.
Next week the children will be learning more about how to use a key and will be devising their own keys for a map of the school grounds.
