The Spring Term has seen us continue our preparation to complete our D of E awards by the end of the year.

We have spent sessions looking at maps in greater detail and learning about how contours, map scales and different types of terrain might affect our journeying time when we come to do the expedition in the summer.

We have also been getting familiar with the D of E route card so we know what information we will need to put into this when designing our expedition routes. More recently, we have been focusing on practical skills such as putting up tents and first aid. We have been practising bandaging each other and putting our arms into slings so we are well prepared and can look after each other as a team!
