? P5, P6 & P7: Orienteering in Gosford Forest Park ?

Posted on: October 5th, 2016 by Mr J White in Information for Parents

On Friday 30th September P5, P6 & P 7 enjoyed an excellent orienteering field trip to Gosford Forest Park as part of the Extended School activities.  The outing was led by the OK Let’s Walk team – Phil & Colm Clarke. Genny & Miss Toner accompanied the group. The aim was to familiarise pupils with map and compass reading in a practical outdoor setting. Phil asked pupils to find their way round his route by recognising symbols and paths on an ordinance survey map and by following compass points. Pupils learned group co-operation skills and how to communicate using walkie-talkies. The weather was fine and sunny so a great day was enjoyed by all.
