Class 2 have been learning about maps during Geography this half term. We have been looking at maps of the country and everyone found Gateshead. We then read What the Ladybird Heard and saw the map made by the burglars to steal the fine prize cow. Pretending to be the burglars we designed our own farmyard maps. Using the key everyone was able to include a pond and some hay for the animals to hide in. After collecting grass and sticks outside we were able to make our own maps and had to put a big X marks the spot on them.
One afternoon everyone came into the classroom to find a treasure map. They followed it out onto the yard and were excited to see treasure had been buried underground in the sensory garden. It was yummy eating all the treasure!
