Hi Primary 5 and Mrs O’Hanlon
I had another busy day today as I am sure you did too.
Today was an extremely windy day and our scheduled canoeing could not go ahead. 🙁 We are hoping that the weather picks up and we will be able to go canoeing in the morning (fingers crossed)
Firstly I was working with groups 3 and 5. Our instructors were Di and Ellid and we were being prepared for a morning of orienteering. We had a go at locating different things on the map by using the key at the side to identify different features.
We had to locate a number of sign posts which had stampers attached and use them to stamp a sheet with thirty different check points. It was fantastic but it can be quite tricky to follow the map. The trick was to ensure the map was positioned correctly by using the sea as a reference point.
It took some people longer than others to complete but everyone was really proud of themselves when they managed to finish.
After the rope adventure we were given the option of climbing a huge tree. Some of the children decided they did not want to do this and this is ok as no one is forced to do something they do not want to do.
I decided to have a go!!!
I was so proud that I made it all the way to the top and got to ring the bell. Melanie took a video of me climbing the tree and I will post it soon for you to see.
Miss you all lots:-(
CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here’s the video Mel took!
