|To read a map you have to think like a bird, flying above the school.|
It's called a 'birds-eye view'.
Room 15 have been learning about different types of maps and how to read them.
|The first thing to learn is that you must 'orientate your map' -|
otherwise you end up going in the wrong direction!
|Mrs Cammell gave us a map and the rest was up to us to find|
the hidden clues.
|The maps show where all the markers are hidden.|
|Working as a team sometimes helped.|
|Our job was to follow the course on the map...|
|... to the right spot where the little white cards were hidden...|
|... and then write down the letters from the marker onto our map.|
|Sometimes they were put in tricky-to-find places.|
|Sometimes they were up a tree.|
|It was also a competition to see who could find all the right markers AND be the fastest...|
so there was no time to stop and pose for photographs.
|None of us got lost... we all turned up again in Room 15 - eventually!|
