Oystercatchers and Avocets conquer Dartmoor!

Posted on

On Wednesday 20th October, all of Year 3 and 4 went on a fantastic trip to Dartmoor National Park.

 We were learning to navigate using maps and compasses as part of our geography and PE this term so this seemed like a perfect place for a trip!

Luckily the weather was kind to us and we had a great time scrambling around (and over!) Hay Tor and Saddle Tor, looking for landmarks on our maps.

 The afternoon was spent “letterboxing” around Saddle Tor and we found at least 20 letterboxes left by others, from which we collected stamps and left our own calling cards.

 Throughout the day the children behaved brilliantly and everyone had a fantastic time – even if most of the adults were stiff and sore the next morning!
