Our children learn essential navigation skills including being able to talk through their journey from school to home, use a map and compass and plan routes.
Phase 3 have been enjoying Geocaching at Gibside as part of their navigation and IT. Our children have been learning about what Sat Nav is and why it’s used. Then they programmed the devices and took turns to lead the group using the devices to navigate them to the check points. Finally after finding the box they had to complete the activities within them.
