Year 5 and 6 had such a wonderful time at Box Hill on Wednesday. We spent the morning learning essential geography skills needed when on an expedition. We enjoyed finding out about what kit to take, how to use a compass and how to read a map, including grid references, map symbols and contour lines. After lunch we used these skills to follow a trail and find our way around Box Hill. It was hard work, but a very enjoyable and active day out in the fresh air. We even had sunshine.
