PE - Orienteering
Today Pine Class learned about maps and keys to help us with our orienteering sessions in PE this term. Below are some photographs of us making a map of an island with string and filling it with objects, which we later decided were features of the island such as: lakes, mountains and volcanoes.
We then drew our own keys for our drawn maps and discussed where each feature was in relation to the other.
Helping your child at home
Below you will find some links to helpful websites and resources to help your child learn at home, whether you are choosing to do a little extra to support their learning, or to support them if your family is isolating.
I hope you find them helpful.

On the parent tab of the homepage, click on Support for Learning, at the bottom of the page you will find a star icon with the label maths. On this page you can find lots of video clips to show you different methods we use to teach the four operations in mathematics and also what vocabulary is appropriate for each year group.
Sometimes the children will bring home work that has unfamiliar vocabulary. Below is a guide to terms we learn in SPAG with a definition.
