Orienteering

Before the Easter break, Galahad class were very excited to be the first children to try out Tubbenden’s very own orienteering course!  Buzzing with enthusiasm after the excellent geography map-work lessons, they were extremely keen to test their 4 figure grid reference skills.  Each group of children were given a map of the school grounds and a list of grid references, each revealing the location of clues which collectively would lead them to a prize.  All groups worked fantastically, demonstrating great teamwork, communication and speed, along with a hint of competitiveness!

(Please note: the hats were for ‘Wear a Hat Day’, not for providing special orienteering powers)
