Mapping our city

Year 2 have been learning about the local area. We started by creating maps to show our own journeys from home to school.

Then with a large piece of paper and coloured tape we marked where the main roads were.

We talked about the buildings and landmarks in our neighbourhood that were important and traced over pictures of them through transparent sheets.

These were copied and painted with watercolour paint before arranging them on our large map.

Year 1 were learning about London and it’s landmarks. We looked at features of maps and created a large map together drawing, painting and collaging important landmarks onto it.
