Junior Ten Tors - 2017
Oakwood will, again, be taking part in Junior Ten Tors. 8 children from year 6 will be training through the next 2 terms in preparation for the event in June.
Please scroll down to see pictures of our adventures!
In June eight year six children will be taking part in Junior Ten Tors!
This involves walking to ten tors on Dartmoor over two days, which means a camp over night too!
The team have been training since January and will continue to do so until the event! Training involves team work skills, navigation practise and being aware of moorland dangers and rules.
Please follow our page for updates on our training, pictures and hopefully some videos too!
My name is Abi. I already enjoy walking my dog on the moors, therefore completing the Ten Tor challenge really appealed to me. I am especially looking forward to spending time with my friends, doing completely different activities outside the school environment. So far, we have had many training sessions to help us get ready for the big day in June- they include first aid, navigation, team building, orienteering and map reading skills. Let's hope the weather is kind to us, making this event really memorable
