Have you ever navigated an orienteering course whilst being chased by aliens? This was the challenge for Year 5 on a sunny March afternoon. Year 5 enjoyed following a route using their map skills whilst racing against their peers. However, they had to be careful of three pupils wearing alien hats. If they were caught, they would have to hand their map over and become an alien themselves! Much fun was had by all.
