Geography – Grid References

We are into our third week of learning and applying our knowledge of reading four-figure grid references on OS maps. This information helps us locate places, by name or by the appropriate map symbol. We have been looking at things such as where the phone box would be, etc.

Over the last two weeks, the children have studied parts of Ordnance Survey maps for Sheffield and London. The children got very excited when they found places near where they lived and the landmarks we have been learning about! We even created a WAGOLL for this week, so the children could try and read the grid references more securely.
