A superb week was spent covering various aspects of our Geography and Science syllabus together with having a great deal of fun learning new skills. Amongst other things, activities included village studies, hill walking – including field work en route, canoeing, pond life observations, team building skills and discovering small mammals.
Some lesser mentioned skills –but certainly very valuable also included sensational sandwich making, ‘discovering duvets’ and proficiency in personal organisation.
Pupils worked towards the John Muir Environmental award which encourages them to explore, discover, conserve and share the countryside environment. The whole group passed with flying colours and hopefully this short week will kindle a genuine interest in caring for and appreciating the world around us.
The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the great participation of all pupils - and staff.
A sincere thank you to everyone for making this one of the most successful visits.
We are already looking forward to next year’s venture .
