Thinking About the World
Where we are ...
As part of our homes topic, we have been thinking about where in the world we are and looking at maps. We read the wonderful book, ‘Me on the map by Joan Sweeney which starts with a child mapping their bedroom, then their house, then their street, town, county, country and then the world.
We explored aerial views of the area on google Earth. Some children were fascinated to find their home on the map. Later they had a go at mapping. Some using blocks and others drawing their room, street or home.
