Where in the world are we?

In geography, the children have been using globes, maps and Google Earth to locate where they live and explore other places around the world.

In class, the children discussed the differences between a globe and a map of the world. They then shared places that they had heard of either locally or further away.

Have a look at the maps link from the website Twinkl. Support your child in locating the United Kingdom on a world map and naming the different places in the UK – England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Maps from Twinkl

In computing, the children have been looking at algorithms (sets of instructions) and have made links with positional language in maths. If you have a tablet, check out the Bee Bot app.

Encourage your child to use the language: forwards, backwards, left, right, turn, North, East, South and West.
