Yr 4 Tyntesfield

10th October 2016

Year 4 had a fantastic trip to Tyntesfield on Monday.

 

The weather was beautiful - perfect for our first activity, which was den building in the woods.

 

The children worked in four groups to see if they could create an outdoor den that had certain extra elements such as a waterproof roof, camouflage, seating, fire pits, entertainment and luxury items.

 

We all rose to the challenge especially Mr Hayden and Mr Rides who enjoyed the competitive element of the activity!!

 

After lunch we were able to consolidate and extend our work on map skills that we had started in the classroom. We orientated our maps with a compass and then went outside to practise moving around a course without moving our maps...not as easy as it sounds.

 

We then moved into the woods where we put our skills to the test by following a simple map trail and answering questions about it.

 

We had a great time and it was brilliant to be able to use our theoretical skills in a practical way in such a beautiful setting.
