During Autumn Term 1, Year 1 have been learning about maps and their local area. They began their unit of work by looking at familiar physical and human features within their local environment. They then learnt about aerial and side view, completing physical outdoor orienteering activities and learning how to navigate around a simple map using north, south, east and west. Finally they looked at local landmarks by completing a walk to the park, where they took pictures of them and then used these to help them draw simple symbols on a map.

Year 2 have been learning all about maps. They began their unit of work by using the compass rose to give directions on a pirate treasure map and then after looking at aerial views of the UK to spot landmarks, they then went out into their local environment to find local landmarks. In groups they recorded where they were on a map of the area, to help them make their own maps back in school.
