We have started to look at pirates in Class 3. We became explorers and investigated an unknown island which had just been discovered. We added map symbols to the island and discussed different geographical features and where we would find them on the island. We looked at rivers, trees, caves, valleys, mountains and volcanoes. We discussed how on maps we see things from a ‘birds-eye’ view. We made our own treasure maps as a group and added on our own geographical features and map symbols. We then presented our maps to the rest of the class.
