Year 3 Find Their Way (November 2015)



This week, 6 lucky children from year 3 got the opportunity to participate in a Gifted and Talented Orienteering event at Moors Valley Country Park. It was a cold start to the day but that did not cool the children’s enthusiasm.


Children first got to learn how to orientate a map and use the surrounding features to help them find their position on a map. This then allowed them to take part in a hunt to find letters that were placed around Moors Valley.


The afternoon saw the children take part in team building activities that focused on developing the sport values of ‘determination, passion, respect, honesty, self-belief and teamwork’.


The children had a fantastic time and really enjoyed learning new skills and working hard as a team. They were a credit to the school and showed how well they can support each other during challenging activities.
