Map reading and compass use trip around Wakefield

On Wednesday 8th June, Y6 pupils were taught how to read Ordnance Survey maps and use a compass to locate their position. They were then taught how to read the land and use the maps to find their way around the local environment. They walked a total of roughly 10 miles and enjoyed leading the group. Each group of 4 were given a task to find the next point and led everyone else there using their compass and map. Dave, the mountain guide, was there to lend a hand when needed.
