Geocaching blog

This term, Primary 5-7 pupils took part on Geocaching activities in and around our local countryside. Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which pupils who took part had to use GPS navigational devices to hide and seek containers called ‘geocaches’. Each cache contained a log book which was signed and dated on discovery using our official code name ‘Hermi-trailers’; some of the larger caches we found also had trade-able items inside and we placed a track-able item inside one of our caches -its mission: ‘to travel as far as possible’.

Back at school we logged our discoveries on the website and we look forward to checking the site from time to time to see how far our trackable item travels.

Pupil comments included:
‘I enjoyed discovering new things’; ‘We went out exploring with our mates’; ‘…the only time adults don’t mind if you get muddy!’; ‘We really enjoyed it even though some of us didn’t find a cache.’; ‘ It was superly, duperly crazily fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’
