Going down to the Pre Prep today I thought that they’d had an excess of chocolate at break time – then I realised that some of them were still wearing the makeup they’d worn for their Nativity play!
To the matter in hand – a Treasure Hunt. They were split into 3 teams and each team was given a piece of fruit that they had to hide. The team then had to draw a treasure map to show where their treasure was hidden. We spoke about compass directions and imagining you were in a helicopter looking down – what would you see? Finally, they had to give the map to another team who had to find the hidden treasure using it. I was quite impressed – two teams had annotated their maps and all three showed “north”. 2 pieces of fruit were found – the last, an orange, had been hidden so well in a pile of logs I think we would have needed a crane to recover it!
