In school we have been learning about maps, compass points and symbols. We are making our own map in groups the groups are called the adventurous, the muddy maps, the orienteering otters and the history hippies. Talking about orienteering we are using maps in orienteering to help use maps properly and also because it is our topic, it is good fun. We have been doing degrees of the compass and bearings. I have not quite got it yet but I will get it. I also need to know how to use a map because it is a bit complicated with all of the wee lines on the maps although it is complicated it is still fun.
