How do we find our way?

 

Take a look at the skills we are learning this term ...

Our learning in Term 3:

 

Above is a document telling you all about what year 4 will be learning about in term 3 along with some key vocabulary the children will be learning. You can support your child at home in learning this vocabulary and what it means.

 

Topic - How do we find our way?

 

If you need to get somewhere, how do you find out where to go? What can you use to guide you?  How do you explain to others how to get there? What words, phrases and actions do you use?

 

After exploring a treasure hunt, using a map and riddles to help, Year 4 will discover what an effective map needs. We will identify what symbols mean, use our knowledge of coordinates in Maths, to read 6 grid references, and explore technology that helps guide us.

Treasure Hunt!

Year 4 will create maps of Kearsney Abbey and write riddles, to help guide adults to their treasure for our Family Learning.

 

 

Explore our local area using Google Maps or find the different symbols on an OS map. What do you think they represent?

 

Can you match the symbols on the game?
