As geographers we explored a variey of maps, including those in atlases. We learnt about keys and what they are used for. We then used the knowledge we had gained to create floor plans of our classroom. We used shapes to represent the objects in the room and then added a key to inform people what each shape relates to.
As geographers, we went on a walk of the local area and looked out for landmarks that are near our school.
To launch our new enquiry, 'Where is my city?', the children used the Ipads to explore Google Maps. As Geographers, we identified that we live in England which is part of the UK. We then explored how we live in the city of Bristol. On Google Maps, we enjoyed locating Bristol and places within our locality such as St Anne's park and the church.
