Spruce Orienteering of Tear Drop Lakes

2019 10 01 09.30.41The pupils in Spruce went on a field trip around Loughton and the tear drop lakes. They were investigating the methods studied in class surrounding map reading and direction. This morning outside gave the children the opportunity to locate themselves on an OS map; take and find locations in relation to grid references; use a compass, finding direction and working out how to use key landmarks to pin point their location. All of the children completed different navigation segments that led them to a new site with the others working out where they'd gone. They all really enjoyed it and we made it back just in time to avoid the rain! Mr Thorne
