Following on from the sketch map skills that we learned about last lesson, the Year Six class have now mastered the geographical art of ‘field sketches’. These are really useful when you are out and about collecting geographical information. You just need to draw the physical environment, so you don’t need to add people or animals.
We learned the acronym OASIS
O – orientation (which direction our sketch is facing)
A – annotation – adding detailed labels to make our sketches clear
S – scale – if possible give measurements
I – information – what is the name of the location
S – sketch (draw what you see)
The children produced super field sketches and made sure they included all of the vital information. Well done Year Six!
