P2: Marvellous Mapping

Marvellous mapping skills have been on show in P2 these past few weeks. To begin our learning, the children created mind maps in groups to tell us what they already know about Helensburgh and mapping. We continued to probe their knowledge, asking them to include questions they wanted answered and anything they wanted to find out about our town over the coming weeks. Together, we will find all the answers.

We have also spent time creating our very own maps of Helensburgh, including street names, symbols for landmarks and a key to help us remember what each symbol represents.  Before attempting this, we explored ‘real maps’ and identfied key features of  maps and buildings within our town. We will eventually use our own maps to guide us around Helensburgh. Hopefully we won’t get lost!
