Hike up Hartshead Pike

This morning, all of year 5 hiked all the way up Hartshead Pike and back as part of our geography topic.

We have been learning all about map symbols, how to use a compass, grid references and route planning. We used an OS map to plan our route and then followed this on the way up to Hartshead Pike.

We traveled on pavements, footpaths, lanes, tracks and across a golf course.

We saw all kinds of wildlife including horses, chickens, a rabbit, dogs and birds.

We made it!
We had a go at sketching the tower and used this sign to work out how far away places were.

We all had an amazing time and should sleep well tonight!
