Map Skills

Not only are we learning to recognise OS map symbols, but children practised an extra maths skill by measuring the distance between two places on a map.

We studied a map of our local area and identified places of interest: our school, the nearest petrol station, picnic areas and parks. The children found particular place names quite amusing, such as Bog Lane and Flying Horse Farm!

To support our learning of our local area, we used a fantastic website called Digimaps for School.
