KS2 Orienteering Competition
Key Stage Two Orienteering Competition
On Thursday 27th February, Crowle Primary School and Althorpe and Keadby Primary School arrived at The Axholme Academy for a friendly orienteering competition. The idea is to enable the students to familiarise themselves with the school before they move to secondary school and also allow them to take part in a different sporting competition. Outdoor Education is a part of The Axholme Academy’s PE curriculum therefore it allows students to experience this first hand too. The students were asked to work in either pairs or groups of three and each group was given a map of the school that they had to orientate around. The aim of the competition was to go to 10 different points on the map and get a clue from each point. The clues were all mathematical shapes; therefore they had to put all of these on their answer sheet in order and race back to the finish line. The first team back with the correct answers were declared the winners. The winning team were 3 boys from Crowle Primary who devised a very clever way of getting the clues as quickly as possible. They all decided to split up and each got a number of clues before meeting back and heading to the finish line. North Lincolnshire also run a county wide competition every year and this competition enabled a warm up before the big event. Well done to all those who took part, there was a fantastic amount of effort put in on the day.
