Outdoor Learning Week: Orienteering

During Outdoor Learning Week, our pupils took part in a range of orienteering activities, culminating in a map-reading challenge. Teams in each year group had to find out who could use their newly-acquired map-reading skills to complete a course in the quickest time. Earlier in the week, the pupils had taken part in lessons which developed their teamwork, understanding of maps and symbols, and ability to give and follow directional instructions. On the final day, the children used an electronic orienteering kit to locate each control point as quickly as they could. The size of the course depended on the year group, with our Year 5 and 6 pupils finding controls using a map of the whole school site. Congratulations to our 2019 Orienteering year group champions!
