4. ### Slide 4 - 4 Figure Grid References

• To make places easier to find on maps
• we use grid references. On ordnance survey maps this is a grid of squares drawn on top of maps and these lines are numbered. The lines that run north to south are called ‘Eastings’. They increase as the lines move East. The lines that run east to west on the map are called ‘Northings’. They increase as the lines go North.
• Activity: Read page 132 in Foundations
• Activity 1: Show Powerpoint on Grid References
• Activity 2: Do handout on next slide
• Questions: Page 133, Q 1 – Q5

• 6 Figure Grid References
• Activity: Handout and label
8. ### Slide 8 - 6 Figure Grid References

• To give a 6 figure grid reference is
• simple. Give the number of the line on
• the left of the symbol and then count across how many tenths the symbol is across the square and put this number at the end. The next step is to give the number of the line below the symbol, count the number of tenths the symbol is ‘up’ the square. Add this number to the end of your original number. You now should have a 6 figure grid reference.
