During Fieldwork Skills week, the whole school will be learning about maps and using maps in our fieldwork trips around Oakthorpe, in Leicester and at Bradgate Park.
How do you use maps?
When do you use a map? What can you find out from maps?
Who else do you know that use maps on a regular basis?
What would the world be like if we didn’t have maps?
Write your comments and answers to these questions at the bottom of this page.
All children have been set a challenge to create a map of their journey to school. Have a look at the key features on your way to school. What distance do you travel? What directions do you turn? Do you travel in the direction of North, South, East or West?
There will be prizes for the best models and maps showing all of your map and fieldwork skills. Please bring them into school by Friday 13th March.
