But before we look any further at maps we need to understand what a 'Birds Eye View ' is?

Imagine you are a bird flying in the sky, you look down, what do you see? A house, a town or more?

The higher you fly, the more you can see!

A huge Animated Thank You to Anne Fousse for sharing the fun of mapping with us. We will certainly be taking a closer look at the maps we see around us in everyday life. We would also like to thank our volunteers for all their support.

The children really have enjoyed Geography Day!
