Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - Road Trip USA!

Buckle up, sunglasses on - Year 4 pupils are going on a road trip across the USA!

This half term pupils in Year 4 will be crossing the Atlantic and learning all about the USA. They will use their map skills to navigate their way around some of the most famous landmarks of the USA and send home a postcard to ask the question: Do you wish you were here?

On their journey they will learn to use maps, atlases, globes and digital / computing mapping to locate countries and describe features studied.

They will also be completing lots of other learning in other curriculum areas linked to this topic.

It's going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair - we're off!
