Year 4 Expert Explorers Find Treasure!

When the carpet was replaced, Year 4 found a treasure map underneath. The map showed that we had to find some 'keys' to find the treasure.There were 3 keys, which were at Harrow Way School, The Lunar Hare and Skye’s Orchard. We all had copies of the real map and we followed the clues and found the keys.

These keys were pieces of parchment in bottles with a scout symbol on. These bottles were really hidden so we had to dig them up and the clues were all in rhyme. The parchment had co-ordinates on and each parchment was different. When we put all the pieces together it showed whereabouts, on the Portway field, the treasure was. We went down there and searched along the hedgerows to find a treasure chest which held chocolate coins and jewels! This helped us to learn to be ‘Expert Explorers’ and how to work together as a team.
