To begin this topic the children wrote on different map symbols the questions they would like to find the answers to as they learn all about 'Mapwork'. Some of these you can see displayed within our classroom.
This lesson, we looked at Ordnance Survey Maps, and became professionals at finding our way around Gainsborough! Being able to recognise the signs and symbols, as well as read the co-ordinates, we were able to follow treasure hunt instructions to find a secret destination!!
In our Geography topic so far, we have been learning about maps. Today, we learnt about contour lines and how to read them. Looking at Topographic maps, we were able to understand how the lines illustrated movement and shape in the land. From this, we made a 3D model out of card, also using flags to show the height of the mountain above sea level.
