Year 6 Orienteering

20th March 2018
On Tuesday, Year 6 took part in the NWLSSP Orienteering at Donisthorpe Woods. The children had a great time and behaved well despite the hanging around. Each pair was given an electronic timing device (a dibber) and a map. They then had 30 minutes to get to as many checkpoints as possible and get back before their time ran out. Each checkpoint was worth 10 points and every minute that they were late back cost them 5 points – every bit tactical as well as physical! At one stage, Zara Browbank and Jayden Rayner-Humberston were ranking 7th out of 231 finishers. The final position for our school was 16th.
