Map Reading

In Topic, we have been learning how to read four-figure grid references and have learnt what some of the symbols mean which are used in Ordnance Survey maps.  We then put our skills to the test by identifying places of interest on a map of South Yorkshire by following and writing grid references.

The Yorkshire Rose

The children have been set a homework challenge of making a Yorkshire Rose by being imaginative with their choice of media.  These are some of the resources that have been used so far: beads, sequins, glitter, paper, tissue paper, leaves, petals, rice and scourers.  I love the imagination!  The designs below are by the following children: Archie, Lexi, Aaron, Lilly, Emily, Isobel and Amelia.  Well done to everyone and thank you parents for supporting your child with this task.
