Epic Day out for P7

On the 31st May Primary 7 embarked on an Epic Day out at Bonaly Scout Centre.  It certainly was epic!

The sun shone all day and everyone had a brilliant time.

The class was split into 3 groups and were given the opportunity to experience different activities.

These included climbing using ropes, night vision walking, low rope activities,  bush craft and hillwalking on the Pentland Hills. We all ate dinner together and this was followed by a camp fire. Needless to say everyone was very tired on Tuesday.

Try Orienteering

Just becasue we are in lockdown doesn’t mean you can’t try new sports.

Orienteering is sort of like a treasure hunt. You go to all the points on a list (controls) and write down a code or take a stamp. You try to do this as quickly as possible.

Here’s video to give you an idea (not lockdown style)

The great news is there are some orienteering courses that have been set up in Edinburgh by ESOC (Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club) and can be used during lockdown. ESOC are a charity so please consider a donation if you use the course.

They aren’t super close to Dalry but if you don’t mind a walk or have a car you could use them for excercise. Don’t use public transport to get there during lockdown.

Remember to not touch the control posts as you go around. Just copy the codes down with a pen. And don’t forget to time yourself.

You can post your best times to Mr D or the School on twitter.

Here are the control lists and maps for each course.
