Our team are currently working towards an AQA unit award in Geography. The unit title is Reading and Drawing maps. To help us achieve this unit we have been learning how to use street maps of the local area. We have been creating routes to and from places of interest to us including the Pods and Central Park.
When we have made a map, we go into the community to walk the route we have created. This helps us to see the roads and street s we have used. This also gives us practice in giving directions and using directional terms e.g. left and right.
We enjoy being out and about in the local area. We feel more confident in using and following maps to reach a location.
