Hampstead Heath map skills workshop!

Year 1 had to put their mapping skills to the test on Tuesday 24th January!

We had an excellent session with Hampstead Heath Education centre.

Year 1 revised reading a compass, using symbols and recognising landmarks on a map!

In teams we hid ‘treasure’ in Hampstead Heath’s very own secret garden.

We then swapped maps and used our map reading skills to locateĀ  another groups hidden pine cones!

We used lots of geographical vocabulary – and can’t wait to do more map work back at school!

Year 1 are officially mad about maps!
