On Wednesday this week our fabulous year 5 pupils enjoyed a very wet adventure as they spent the day map reading their way to Sherwood Pines and around the orienteering course up there. Our children learned about the ways to read maps and things to look for and emerged from the day with new skills.

The pupils and staff spent time together in the great outdoors, laughing, talking, tying shoelaces and reading maps!

We are very lucky to have Sherwood Pines on our doorstep and a wonderful class to share it with. Well done everyone for walking all that way and thank you to our staff for their support (they’re just about dried out now!).

Don’t forget that there is a family orienteering course available at Sherwood Pines so children can teach the rest of their families how to do this too! We’d love to hear about your adventures if you try it.
