Yesterday afternoon, in Geography the children completed a treasure hunt around the school grounds. It was with great excitement that the children used the grid references and bird’s eye view of the school to locate and solve the clues. When the children had discovered the hidden word, they received the final clue that enabled them to work together to use the map to locate the treasure. Year 2 applied their geographical knowledge excellently and took a lot of exercise at the same time!
This term in Geography, Year 2 have been learning about maps. On Tuesday this week, I gave the children a treasure map of the school with a series of clues to help them to solve the puzzle. The children used the map and their knowledge of the school to collect all the clues and return victorious. Of course, everyone received a prize (even if they needed a little help!)
It was with great excitement that Year 2 applied their newly acquired map reading skills to a treasure hunt around our school grounds this week. In teams, the children located the clues using the grid references on their map of our school grounds. It turned out to be really good exercise as some of the teams decided to compete to see who could solve the clues first. Everybody completed the hunt successfully and demonstrated some very good map work skills!
Well done Year 2. Do you remember which famous explorer we discovered? For a plus can anyone tell me what he is famous for?
