Year 1 Mapwork
In year one children learn how to create their own maps with the addition of a key and compass. The ability to turn the 3D landscape into a 2D map is an important skill. We learn about physical and human features and begin to learn about using symbols.
These maps were created by children returning to school after lockdown during the COVID19 pandemic. We used this task to discuss our memories of being in this unique situation, labelling our map features with activities completed while away from school. This provided a super platform for sharing experiences and geography skills.
