Dear Year 2 students,
Thank you very much for the lovely postcards you made for me. I hope you are enjoying looking after Ike, and that he is behaving himself. I love your drawings and your messages.
I would like to know more about the geography of your school grounds. Maybe you could ask your teachers and Year 1 to help too. Don’t forget to take Ike outside with you so you can take some photographs of your fieldwork for me.
I’d love to see a photo of Ike at the top of the slide, and in one of the trees. You could take a photo of him in the greenhouse, and by the pond, but be very careful!
The photograph I used to show your school grounds is taken from high up in the sky above your school. Photographs are really useful in geography, but maps can be even better because they are easier to read. I imagined that I was flying over your school and I drew a map looking straight down. Please can you help me by drawing arrows onto my map to show where all the things in your drawings are?
Why not try to draw your own map of the school grounds too? If you ask your teacher to send me some photographs of your maps, and of Ike in different places, then I can add them to this blog so that everyone can see what excellent geographers you are.
I’m really looking forward to hearing from you.
Lots of love from,
Geography Cat x
