We started this half-term with a topic day. We began with a geography morning and learnt all about using maps!

We went on a hunt around our school groups, using an aerial photo as a map.

We learnt about the purpose of a key on a map and drew our own treasure islands.

We used our keys to ask and answer questions about the things on our maps.
