My School and Me!
In our topic this half-term, year 1 have been learning about ourselves, our school and our community. We have been explorers and some of our favourite activities have been using and making maps. First, we explored our school grounds, working out where the different features were, creating a plan of our grounds. Then we went out into our local community and used our map reading skills to think how we were going to get to different places. We spotted local landmarks – road signs, bus-stops, the church, the park, the roads where some of us lived and even where Mrs D’Auria posted her letters! We really enjoyed creating items to make a large map on our wall and added photographs of ourselves in our favourite places. We also used digi-maps, our on-line mapping software, to add labels and photos of the places that we found on our walk. We’ve learnt so much about creating and using maps. Next stop after half-term – mapping the UK!Read More
