I can create and interpret simple grid maps
A grid reference is a specific location to help find places on a map quicker.
It always starts with the letter first, then the number.
These are also called axes. The left and right axis (horizontal) is referred to as the ‘x-axis’. The up and down (vertical) axis is referred to as the ‘y-axis’.
For example, the school is in location A3. The police station is located at D4.
Can you find the grid reference for each item?
