Mapping in Millhouses Park

We had a lovely trip to Millhouses Park this morning.  We walked down to the park, spotting landmarks, to get a sense of place. We then explored the park and made a map with a key. We had  a go at finding north using the compasses. It was quite a challenge! Finally, we had snack and a play in the park.

Thank you very much indeed to all our parent helpers, you were brilliant!

 

The children then went back to school and explained to our reception friends how we mapped the different areas of the park. They then helped all made a 3d model of their own park.  The children worked so well together as teams,  used a variety of skills to create their virtual parks.
