Tri ‘O’

‘A complete introductory orienteering activity package for schools’

Recently completed a series of orienteering activities with Sanderson’s Wynd Primary culminating in a competition across classes and a mini festival of orienteering using British Orienteering’s Tri-O resource pack.

It was great to try out the resources and the staff that took part will now be able to use these resources time and time again with their own classes.

All these resources are available as a free download from British Orienteering and any extra orienteering specific resources are available  from your Outdoor Learning Service

Sanderson’s Wynd Paralympics

It was with pleasure that I was able to work last week with Sanderson’s Wynd Primary pupils – from P5 and the Hub.

In the morning the P5 pupils undertaook some orienteering training of their own – specifically looking at sensory deprivation and developing empathy (hence the bucket on the head!) (removing sense of sight).

In the afternoon these pupils then assisted some pupils from the Hub to try their hand and orienteering around their school grounds complete with photographs and objects of reference (chives; daffodils; leaves; water; soil; twigs)

It was great to be able to help all pupils from across the school and to see the P5 pupils paas on their skills and knowledge. More photos and reports here
