Mapping work with Class 2

Class 2 went for a walk up Benslow Lane this morning to practise their mapping skills.

They had to find eight different objects or buildings and mark them in the correct places on their pre-drawn maps. It was quite tricky to work out exactly where to put them and even which side of the road to position them on. The children made up their own symbols to represent the objects they were marking on the maps.

Once we had returned to school, the whole class discussed and agreed symbols to use on the maps. Then the children drew another map using the agreed symbols and careful positioning. Finally, they wrote the key into their books.
