Hello Year 1,
You have all drawn your own fantasy woodland map and made a key for it.
Now we are looking at coordinates:
A point on a grid that has two numbers to identify its position. These numbers are known as coordinates.
Coordinates are always written as the number of steps across first, then the number of steps up or down.
There is a map for you to look at and you will be identifying the coordinates on the map... I will start you off.
The first coordinate says the treasure is in C6.
You need to go across to C and go down the C column until you stop at 6. You should land on the treasure.
Remember to use the key as it tells you what the symbols are.
It’s your turn now to complete the coordinates on the map.
If you really want to be adventurous, you can draw your own map on a grid and put symbols in certain areas. Then you can add your own coordinates. How wonderful would that be!
