In class, we have been exploring ordnance maps. We started looking at 4 digit grid references and developed into 6 digit grid references. We were challenged to locate a point on a map when given a grid reference and then given a landmark to supply a grid reference. We will move this on to look at contours to work where in Cheddon Fitzpaine would be the best site for an Iron Age hill fort.

We then looked in the regions that make up England. Some names where new to us.
