P5/6/7 Orienteering

We had a wonderful morning and afternoon orienteering with Outdoor Education Specialist Martyn Pegg. We learned lots of new skills and then put these to the test by competing against each other to see who could complete the orienteering course accurately and quickly. We were very lucky to have a gorgeous day to do this on, as you can see from the photos!

P1/2 Orienteering

Children in P1/2 enjoyed an orienteering session with Martin Pegg from Outdoor Education on Thursday afternoon. He brought special orienteering equipment for them to use. Children worked with a partner and needed to use their map reading skills again to locate stations around the school grounds. Electronic “keys” recorded their routes and times. The winning team visited all eight stations in the correct order and took 2 minutes and 56 seconds.
