In 300m, turn right...

Year Six spent yesterday at The Connaught School learning about how GPS systems work. They discussed the role that longitude and latitude played in giving us positional information. They then tested their direction skills by using a GPS Tracker to hunt for hidden treasure! In the classroom, they applied their knowledge by interpreting maps and then created detailed maps for the new Year Seven pupils using ICT. Finally, a session playing table tennis ensured we were all exhausted! What a fantastic day - a huge thank you to the staff and young leaders at The Connaught School.
