Pirate Orienteering


Happy New Year from Year 4!


We kickstarted our term with our new topic 'Under the Sea.' We were visited by Adrian Hall, the real-life explorer who visited us the previous year. He delivered a pirate-themed orienteering session which we thoroughly enjoyed. We started by looking at different types of maps and learnt about how you could use stars for direction, just like pirates would! 


After that, we discovered that you can measure distances without equipment and learnt how to use a compass!

Finally, we were given maps to help us locate the gold and emerald treasure flags which were hidden around the school. We had to be as accurate as possible when reading our maps, as some of the flags were really well hidden.

Thank you to Adrian Hall for another enjoyable session!
