Yesterday Miss Johnston’s and Mrs Wakefield’s Maths Setting class were learning how maths is used by sailors! Duncan Munro who is a Navigational Officer working in the Merchant Navy joined the class to tell them about his job with Seabourn Cruiseline and to teach them about compass points, bearings and degrees.
The children spent part of the morning working in groups in the playground, using a compass to navigate from one location to another. The pupils loved his presentation and hearing about real life pirates! Many thanks to Duncan for coming into our school to share his knowledge and experiences with the pupils and for judging the homework competition to design a compass rose
