Year 6 were set a homework task over the half term to create a treasure map. This was a task set f9llowing on from their recent geography lessons. Their map was required to demonstrate the different elements of maps that they have learnt. For example, map symbols, a key and grid references. Below you can see just a selection of the amazing pieces that were created!


Year 6 have really been enjoying their geography lessons. In today’s lesson we looked at how height can be shown on a map. The children used potatoes to represent a hill and drew their own contour lines onto them.



Map Skills

Year 6 are looking at map skills in geography. Their first lesson has been all about map symbols. The children’s main task was to write a short story about a journey exchanging some of the words for map symbols. The children had lots of fun and came up with some really imaginative stories!
