Out and about with Mr Hopkins!

This week for PE has seen more Orienteering take place. Orienteering is a race where a map is given to a team with a series of control points. The team then have to navigate their way around the countryside finding each control point in turn in the quickest time possible.

Over the past few weeks the classes at SBU have been fantastic in learning how to read and understand maps and navigating their way around unfamiliar places. It’s really extending their leadership, communication and teamwork skills while also lifting their independence, confidence and decision making too. Well done to all!

For the John Muir award this week SBU 5 were out exploring Pule Hill above Diggle. I set them 6 different challenges to complete and they absolutely smashed them all! What a great group – scrambling up hills, finding hidden poems, squeezing through small caves and taking on the infamous gully run. We also turned ourselves into kites at the top of the hill to really experience the power of the wind!

A great experience, well done SBU 5!

Also this week we took our football team to play against another SEMH school in Warrington. We had a great day linking up the schools and a very competitive match took place with some fantastic sportsmanship and some good football. Well done to all the pupils who attended and represented Spring Brook so positively. It looks like this could be a regular fixture!
