Year 4 are doing a topic about Barnsley. I enjoyed listening to some facts that they know about Barnsley. I also learnt that year 4 have been looking at maps. They told me they had made maps and plans of their classroom and that they had used a key on their map. This was going to be helpful for what we were going to do today.
First of all the children put themselves in groups to make dens. After a few minutes the children were able to find groups for themselves to work in. It’s not really as easy as it sounds! Once they had built their dens we looked at how we could use things from the woods to make a plan of the area around our dens. Can you remember some of the things you used to represent your den, the trees, and other things in the area?
