This afternoon we used the iPads outside. Using a map from digimaps, we added photos of plants that we could find in areas around the school. What plants and flowers did you find and where?
We have been learning how to use a key on different ordnance survey maps. We have learnt what different symbols mean, like car park and churches. We also looked at contour lines, which show you where hills are. How many churches did you find? How many different types of church are marked on a map?
This afternoon we have been looking at Ordnance Survey maps of our local area. We have been using the digimaps website and seeing how Telford has changed by comparing some old maps to see what has always been here and what has changed changed. What did you learn about our local area?
