In Geography we have been learning about our local environment. We looked at map skills which include orienteering, locating, navigating and map making.
We used our Mathematical knowledge of position, direction and movement to help us. We now know that that there are maps for different purposes such as street maps, village maps, town, school maps, Sat Navs and google maps.
We explored a range of activities that included orienteering the KS2 playground, drawing our school map, giving directions to different places on our role-play town and playing location games on the computer. All these helped us to put our maps skills in practice as we followed given directions for a route.
