KS2 Orienteering event

On Thursday 19th May 59(!!) pupils went to Westfield Secondary School to take part in the Key Stage 2 Orienteering event. 

This was a team relay (Star Relay-not an individual event) with a maximum team of 5 members. Each individual runner / pair started at the circle and went off to a different checkpoint. At the checkpoints you had to whole punch the score card and then get back to the control table to get allocated your score. After this your scorecard and map were passed onto the next team runner to allow them to do the same. There were 12 different checkpoints spread around Westfield Schools field which meant everyone had to complete two checkpoints (minimum). 

This is generally different to individual orienteering as it wasn't electronic and you had to return each time. You also had to be careful hole punching the card as the hole-punches had a number of different patterns to make sure that people couldn't cheat. This meant you had to be careful as a team in making sure you went to the correct control. As we were in teams you always had someone spurring you on which was nice and very encouraging as some pupils were trying this for the first time.

EG-"It was a great day out where everyone got to compete and it was really fun whether you came last or first"

EJ-"It was extremely tiring but the immense feeling of pride helped spur us on and made up for all of that"
