We are continuing our 'Our World' topic with some work on maps and different ways to look at the world. We started this week with a completely empty map. We decided that this map was a map of the second floor (where the Year 1 classrooms are located). In small groups the children, with map in hand, went with Ms. Yang to see if they could work out which room was which. They all completed a small part of the map, and then with this knowledge the children played a game called 'Marketplace'. Each group was given £5 each (pretend money). With this money they had to go to other groups and pay for information so they could complete their maps. It was interesting to see how much money they spent and how much they accumulated!
