Key features include:

  • Comprehensive information presented in a succinct and interesting format in Fast Facts and Did You Know? panels

Map Assessment 1 and 2 will help teachers monitor and assess pupils’ learning. They provide a convenient way of recording each pupil’s individual progress and facilitate the development of mapping skills from one class to the next.
