Last Thursday all the children from Nursery through to Year 8 took part in an orienteering event organised by Neil Speers from Dartford Orienteering Klubb (yes it's spelt correctly!).
Last year Neil surveyed the school grounds and produced a specialist orienteering map which the children used for this event. Following a route on the map, the children had to find various controls – its not just about speed, but taking time to read a map and plan a route! Their position and time were plotted by electronic dibbers, so this was a great combination of technology, geography and cross-country.
The results can be seen to current parents on the link below.
What a fantastic event for the children, they all loved it!
Thank you to Tanith at the Big Cat Sanctuary for a selection of wonderful fluffy prizes!
Many thanks to Mrs Speers and her husband Neil for organising this wonderful day for the children.
