The boys recently had to complete an activity that tested their ability to follow directions, bearings and distance instructions to find the ‘treasure’ on an island using an A4 size map. They then had to photo copy their completed map to an A3 size and build an appropriate landscape using playdough, computer generated designs and colour pencils. It was a great way to work with the boys in a hands-on learning experience whilst also allowing for some real creativity. I have been really impressed with the high level of ability and enthusiasm that these boys have shown so far this year.
