Autumn 2021 Expeditionary Project
My Map Book
Where Does My Home End?
In this project children will be exploring the concept of maps and considering their use, value and potential for change. Children will be developing a sense of place whilst developing and using their geographical knowledge as they learn about their local area. This will continue to foster a sense of responsibly for their environment, liking with the previous project. Children will be drawing and interpreting maps as well as identifying the human and physical features of the local area and beyond. As well as being able to locate Stockbridge Village on a map, children will also be able to locate Liverpool and recognise major landmarks including researching their historic value. The children will explore how Stockbridge Village has changed over time. Further more, children will explore historic maps, recognising change over time in their local area and wider city.
We will be reading 'My Map Book' by Sara Fanelli.
In each spread of this bold and humorous picture book... children can examine their place in the world around them through detailed and engaging maps. Twelve beautifully illustrated maps such as Map of My Day and Map of My Tummy will fascinate children.
A knowledge organiser and map of our project can be found and downloaded below. Children will receive a printed copy to take home. The organiser should be used as an information poster throughout the project - they do not need to memorise everything upon receiving it!
PLEASE SEND IN YOUR CHILD'S BOOK BAG EVERY DAY
All children will bring home a home reading book from our school library. They will have a set day when they will read with a teacher or learning coach in school. However, you child can change their reading books as often as possible. Please make a brief comment in your child's Reading Record.
It is important that you read with your child at least three times per week but preferably more. We strive to foster a love of reading in your child and you can support us by talking to them about their book and motivating them by listening to them read aloud.
We follow a mastery maths programme and use the White Rose Planning resources. Children are supported in a variety of approaches to their maths work to ensure sound mathematical understanding. The approaches used are as follows:
Concrete – children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives to help them understand what they are doing.
Pictorial – alongside concrete objects, children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.
Abstract – both concrete and pictorial representations should support children's understanding of abstract methods
An overview of the maths blocks can be viewed below.
Children in Year 1 and 2 should not bring a snack into school as children in these years benefit from the free fruit and milk scheme. They will be able to have their water bottle, milk and a choice of fruit each day.
