Trip to Dartmoor.
We went to Bellever Tor. We were learning how to make maps and we drew maps of where we walked. We were spotting geographical features to put on to our maps.We then looked at OS maps to compare them with the ones that we had made to see any differences. A good day enjoyed by all enjoying all the views.
