Year 4's Elba Park Adventure!

Our Year 4 children had a fabulous afternoon visiting Elba Park.

Linked to our topic 'Awesome Adventurers', the children had the opportunity to go geocaching - which is very similar to orienteering.

Working with a team from Groundwork UK, we first looked at maps of the park and discussed how to read and follow them by using co-ordinates. In groups, we then explored the park in search of treasure boxes which were hidden in different areas.

Each box contained a picture of a woodland animal and gave the co-ordinates of the next box to look for. We all had a wonderful afternoon exploring and discovering!
