The P5/6/7’s in Port Ellen Primary School are doing a topic on Orienteering. We had to learn about reading maps properly so we could find the posts quicker. When we did Orienteering, Mrs Clark our teacher, timed us and she said whoever came quickest back got to design a orienteering course for us to find the flags. It was great fun. We all were with a partner. We all were very puffed after orienteering but we all had fun, and we all are looking forward to do Orienteering again soon!
Our p567s did a 1 mile walk around the school. They figured out how many times they needed to walk around the outside of the playground to make 1 mile. They had to walk it 4 times to make a mile. They all had lots of fun doing it.
