Wokingham Orientering

16th May 2017

The Year 6 orienteering team attended the orienteering competition on Tuesday 16th May with excitement as it was the first time many of the team had represented the school! 11 Wokingham schools began the orienteering, maps in hand, working together in pairs to reach all the checkpoints as fast as possible. Shinfield’s first pair got slightly lost, but recovered brilliantly as the team worked through their checkpoints with increasing efficiency. Without knowing the final outcome as they left, Mr Lappin later received an email declaring that Shinfield had come 4th overall! A great achievement in one of the toughest competitions of the year as it tested the children’s teamwork and map reading skills without any adult input.
