Goldcrest Visit Summer 2 2019

On the 18th June 2019, Year 4 participated in an excellent outdoor learning experience courtesy of Goldcrest Outdoor Education Centre. Linked to their learning about habitats and food chains, the children participated in an orienteering activity based around the school ground. On the day, they also learnt about how to read a satellite map and use a compass to navigate.  Rounding off the day, the children played a fun and exciting game entitled ‘Hawks and Blackbirds’ which was based on understanding food chains, predators and preys. The children had a fantastic time learning outside and the weather even blessed us with some sunshine! Inside the classroom, pupils examined and identified common Ordanance Survey symbols and plotted some of these on a grid.
