Routes

In our last post we thought about ways of naming the landscape and parts of the landscape. Here is aa nice frame that you could use to put them to use.

Here are some lines from a poem by Ian Macmillan about the walk to school:

Down Barking-dog lane
past the street with the boat
Clouds rush by
Sometimes it rains
 
Up Old-lady-waving Road
past the field with the car.
 
Ian McMillan

Think of a route where you walk – with your dog, perhaps, to the shops or bus stop, or, like Ian McMillan, on your way to school. Draw a map of it helps. Write the directions for the walk. Use names that you have made up to describe the route.
