In year 3 they looked at what a four figure grid reference was and how to use them. They looked at Denver and plotted famous landmarks there on their grid.
Year 3/4 had to use a compass to help them work their way around the chocolate factory. They had to answer questions about where the different sections of the factory were on the gird. They did a super job!
Lower key stage 2 went outside for this activity! Hidden around the playground were the characters from their adventure, Charlie and the Chocolate factory. They were given a compass and had to try and find the characters and then they wrote down in which direction they found the characters.
