Published: Jul 2020

Inspirational KS2 geography specialist Jane Whittle leads her class on a magical journey through the school's own woods, with the aim of creating a map of their route.

The children explore the woods, picking up reminders of their experience along the way, including leaves, moss and bottle tops, which they fix to their own personal "journey sticks".

Armed with sticky tape, drawing pins and tonnes of enthusiasm, Jane and her class explore the personal nature of geography, the countryside code and all the most important elements of map making.
