The Year 8 Young Ventures group group, known as the Navigators, had their first taste of finding their way with a map last Saturday, 8th April, and they did very well! They found difficult to find junctions and almost non-existent tracks and we didn't get lost at all.

They spent a lovely sunny morning trekking round Ackender Woods doing their best to avoid the mud -not always successfully! But, as well as finding their way they had a lot of fun, laughed a lot and sang enthusiastically (loudly and without pause) for the final 10 minutes of the walk!

They plan to do an unaccompanied whole day walk followed by an overnight camp in the summer.
