Years 5 & 6 Go Geocaching!

5th October 2017

Years 5 & 6 spent the day at Gibside in order to use their map reading and orienteering skills. Our topic of Marvellous Maps has helped us to learn how to recognise and use symbols and markings on maps, how to use a baseplate compass and how to navigate using a hand-held GPS geocaching device. All of these fun (and potentially life-saving) skills were put to great use by the children, as we searched meadows, woodland and buildings for waypoint markers and hidden challenges. The weather could not have been more perfect and we all had a fantastic time.
