On Friday 29 June as part of Humanities Week activities, the Year 1 pupils spent the morning in Epping Forest looking for the signs of summer and learning all about mapping. They took a walk up to the Queen Elizabeth Hunting Lodge where they were met by their guide Kate. Kate spoke to the children about how maps help us navigate and find our way around. She led the group into the forest where they were able to look for the signs of summer and mini beasts, all while talking to the children about how to identify various animals and bugs.
Once in the shade of the forest the children made mini beasts using the natural materials of the forest then drew maps to help their friends find their creations. It was a fun and informative morning had by all.
