Year 5 Spring 1 half term topic

Date: 22nd Dec 2015 @ 9:43pm

Dear Class 5AT,

During this first Spring half term, Year 5 will be learning about map skills.  The learning challenge will be ‘Why are map skills important?’  We will be learning about; how to plan a journey including distance; locating some countries on a world map and atlas; how to map land use; naming and locating world major rivers and mountain regions; and recognising the climate of a country based on its location on a map.

Check out these websites to develop your skills and knowledge in mapping skills:
