'The Cartophiles' Now on Pre-Order until 31st May 2018!
I visit the Schools for the day to teach up to 4 Workshops, usually in the school hall or big open space. All resources are brought along and handed out for each pupil. A bespoke site-centred OS Map of the School is included, to be used for future outings.
Numbers, Letters, Grid Referencing, Scale, Colour, decision-making, understanding local area, Map-Reading, symbol identification. Cognitive, Fine Motor and Language and Numeracy Skills are within the Workshop.
Wootton Lower School - (Trial) November 2016
Since 2017, Captain Alice taught in 8 different Schools around Bedford and Cambridge and 3 different external locations -including The Higgins and Marston Vale Forrest Centre. Teaching over 459 Children all about Maps - Captain Alice is thrilled with the first few results!
The trial Workshop was in Wootton, Bedford in November 2016. I took 3 Classes of 28 and invited the local paper Bedfordshire on Sunday along. Link
I am Testing video production- it gives you an idea of the events!
I don't usually recommend scrunching up maps....BUT IT MAKES THEM LOOK OLD! Add dabs of Teabags..and then it looks even older..
