This week we have been taking part in lots of activities to celebrate World Orienteering Day. The older children continued with their weekly orienteering session which, this week, took them to another beautiful location, Longlands Lake, Cleator Moor. A hidden gem of a location! Here at Bridekirk we encourage children to “have a go!” and try the sport of orienteering. With our local area having so much to offer - it'd be a shame not to explore in this way.
Younger children have been reading orienteering maps and finding hidden locations around the school. We hope that by encouraging our children at a young age to read maps and be active, they'll sign up for our orienteering inter-school activities as they move into KS2.
