3,4 A Class News

Friday 22 September 2023

This week we’ve been learning about maps as part of our Geography topic – ‘Where in the world am I? We’ve looked at what is a compass is and how we can use one, how to work out which direction we are travelling in and how the key works on an Ordnance Survey map.

Our reading lessons have also tied in with this topic, looking at texts about the four different cities of the United Kingdom to practise retrieving information to answer questions.

Help at home by regularly listening to your child read and discussing the content to develop understanding. Feel free to quiz us on the countries in the United Kingdom and the points of a compass too!
