'X' Marks the Spot Workshops

Bedford and Surrounding Areas Workshops

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.

Skills Learned

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.


I am a Cartographer, so I have created all of the Mapping and had the ideas that are in line with the pupils learning needs and the UK Primary Curriculum.
