orienteering

The sun shone, the sky was blue – a perfect day for the outdoors!

The Eagles (Y4/5/6) spent a beautiful day at Bewerley Park near Pateley Bridge learning about orienteering as part of their PE studies for this half term.  Here’s what Harry had to say about it:

Dear Bewerley Park,

Thank you for showing us what orienteering is and letting us do the courses and showing us different ways to orienteer. Our favourite course was the one in the woods.  We learned to work as a team.  We hope that now we can read maps and that we have the opportunity to use our map reading in real life.  I want to go again because it’s cool!

Harry (Y4)

Keiran (Y5) wrote this acrostic poem:

O – outdoor fun

R – running to find the numbers and letters

I – indoors to learn about What, Where and How

E – eating lunch with friends in the afternoon

N – no-one being naughty!

T – teamwork

E – endurance

E – Eagles working together

R – racing to the flag pole

I – interesting checking the letters

N – new ideas!

G – great fun!

Thank you to Mrs Stones for organising the day.  Eagles really enjoyed their opportunity to spend time outdoors, working together and enjoying friendship, trust, peacefulness and endurance!

  1. Hi Mrs Monaghan,
    How fantastic to hear about your children having such fun in the outdoors!
    My class at Askrigg & Bainbridge schools wondered if you would like to have a look at our blog and get involved in the activities in our Mathematical Mindsets week, which begins on Monday? We would love to hear their thoughts on what we are doing.
