Year 1 – Our Local Area

Year 1 have been learning all about maps! We have plotted and placed symbols on a map of the local area and created a key to describe the symbols.

We plotted various routes to Year 1’s favourite shop, ASDA. The 3 classes each chose their favourite route, and raced the other classes. Classical Class came in first place on the way there. We know that because they chose the shortest route.

This has been part of our project for the spring term – learning all about our local area of Beckton, and the significant London landmarks. Barnaby Bear has been going on many adventures to our homes, and other exciting London sites with our children and families. We have been filling up his passport with drawings, writing and photographs to document all of his incredible journeys!
