We have been learning why early settlers chose to settle in certain places and how settlements grew over time. After that, we developed our mapwork skills by studying OS maps and their symbols. The children learnt to read the 8 compass points and then after mastering 4 figure grid references, moved onto 6 figure grid references. Finally, we produced sketch maps of Enmore village from digital maps.
We took part in an orienteering workshop at the Wild Place Project, putting into practice all of the skills we had learnt in the classroom. Each team had to navigate themselves around the site, stopping at 8 checkpoints to answer questions about the animals or use their mapwork skills.
We drew maps of the school to create an orienteering trail of our own for Class 1. To link in with their topic, Julia Donaldson, the children had to use the maps to find and collect 10 pictures of her books.
