What an exciting afternoon Year 3 had on Wednesday! We were very fortunate to be joined by Mr Green (Alice’s dad). He very kindly offered to join us to help us with our learning about Ordnance Survey maps.

Mr Green shared with us a very informative Cbeebies video clip that he had been part of the making of, we learnt all about what a map is, how maps are made and the scaling of maps. Did you know that up to 20,000 pieces of new information can be added to a map each day?!

We were then set the very specific challenge of trying to locate 3CL’s classroom on a range of maps! 3CL finished our exciting afternoon with an OS symbols quiz, whilst 3LS enjoyed making models to show the contours of a map. Overall we had a great afternoon and everyone learnt something new (including all our adults). Thank you very much to Mr Green, we’d love to invite you back in again soon!
