In Geography, the children have been developing their mapping skills and preparing to draw their own map of a route around the school grounds. The recent glorious weather was perfect for this outdoor activity, as the children were collecting objects in order to create their own journey stick, which would help them to recall the key features of their route. Some very imaginative objects were collected, which included leaves, stones, foliage and feathers which were carefully attached to their sticks as they proceeded along the route. They were able to discuss the importance of the correspondence between halfway along the route and half way along their stick and begin to identify right and left turns. Back in the classroom, the children were able to explain why they had selected their objects and these will help them to draw their route map.
