Year 4 – Fantastic Fieldwork

To support out Geography lessons, the children (and adults) had a wonderful day yesterday, getting to grips exploring the school grounds using a map! Supported by Mr Fox, the children had to use the key, showing where features such as buildings or trees were, to find various points on the map and clip a symbol to show they’d found it – the ‘Clipper Trail’. Following this, the children then created their own maps – making their own key and drawing the corresponding symbols to show where everything is situated.

Mr Fox was extremely impressed by the children and their enthusiasm and skill shown despite the mud… sorry adults! I’m sure everyone’s washing machines (including mine) were on last night. However, the muddy conditions only added to the experience and the children did indeed feel like they were explorers using their own maps especially in the woodland!

Well done children and thanks Mr Fox!
