St. Brigid’s GNS, Cabinteely; Artist: Tunde Toth; Teacher: Laragh McFeely, 3rd class – Session 7

Session 7 took place on the 8th of February when we looked at again, a different way to explore and create MAPS.

The children drew maps of their journeys from home to school, on long, narrow strips of papers (till rolls). The shape of the paper presents a challenge of course, as everyone has to figure out their own way to represent roundabouts, changing directions and the turns and twists of their journey. There have been some unusual and very clever solutions in the class!

Mapping of the visual elements of these routes was followed by the mapping of sounds, significant colours and smells – turning the activity into a sensory investigation of everyday locations and travels.

Ms McFeely had the long maps perfectly displayed – suspended from the beams in the high-ceiling classroom.
