The Trail and Challenge Event was an outdoors adventure themed activity with an orienteering focus. The children worked in groups and used maps of the Rising Sun Country Park and simple orienteering equipment to navigate themselves around the park from one point to another to locate a variety of places on the site. There was a competitive element to the day as there were other schools taking part as well but the main focus was on having fun, team work, using and developing directional skills, map skills physical activity, enjoyment in spending time outdoors with their peers and of course orienteering.
Every child worked so hard and kept team moral high, even in the wet, muddy conditions. They secretly really enjoyed splashing around in muddy puddles!!! The class worked so hard and showed off just what a brilliant year 5 group they really are. Well done guys. Superb skills all round.
