YEAR 3 & 4 ORIENTEERING 2023
Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport similar to a cross-country race. The difference is that it involves walking or running while navigating around a course. Participants use a detailed map, and sometimes a compass, rather than following a set course. They have to reach set control points along the way and work soundly as a team.
Today’s orienteering was held at The Ellis Primary School on a very rainy afternoon. It was cold and extremely muddy, which made a very slippery course as can be seen from the pictures below. This didn’t bother the children though, they carried on with smiles on their faces. Well Done Team Birdwell
