Mountain Biking and Orienteering

The term started with the children’s introduction to Mountain Biking and Orienteering. The pupils were introduced to the outdoor education team who explained the courses they would be doing over the term up to the Easter break. The class have been split into two outdoor teams; the ‘Orienteering’ team and the ‘Mountain Biking’ team. Each team will learn new skills in their outdoor activity for 6 weeks. At the half way stage, the teams will swap over. The children are very lucky to be using brand new mountain bikes from the ‘Chris Hoy’ range.

Tag Rugby

Today Michael Davidson taught us Tag Rugby skills. We all wore tags and when someone in the opposite team managed to grab a tag, we had to pass the ball to someone else in our team. We learned passing and catching skills and to touch the ball on the ground to secure a try. Michael will visit us for three more Wednesday afternoons and then we will take part in a cluster Tag Rugby tournament.
