Ordnance Survey specialists!

During the week, Year 5 have been working together to develop their map reading skills.  We learnt about the history and usefulness of Ordnance Survey maps, how maps of different scales can help us depending on what information we want to find out and how to use a six-figure grid reference.  Although mobile telephones and satellite navigation are used by so many people to get around, you never know when technology might fail so what we were learning about might prove to be really useful!  We have also really enjoyed our first lacrosse lessons, designing basic pulley systems in DT and watching seed dispersal in action in science.
