Anne Fousse from 'The World Class' gave a mapping presentation to Years 1 and 2 followed by a workshop where we made our own maps.
Map on a bag!
Is this the laundry or a map of Europe? Is that boot Italy?
Map showing the most popular name of soft drinks!
? Very interesting!
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!
This map is a birds eye view of a house.
Do you recognise this birds eye view?
Time to make our own maps!
Year 1 made maps of an imaginary town using bricks.
Year 2 made maps of an imaginary island country using symbols to place services.
Country Island 'Glace'
Country Island 'Glorybee'
Country 'Poppet Island'
Country Island 'Ricio'
Country Island 'Crystal'
Country Island 'Arachfmmae'
Creative Maps - this piece of art has been created completely from maps!
Look carefully at this map. What do you see?
Is it a map of Asia or a chicken?
A huge 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.
