A spectacular day of outdoor learning was enjoyed by Year 5 students.
Staff and students from our secondary school organised and ran a special Wild Science day in the beautiful surroundings of Bride’s Pool.
Our students investigated how pulleys worked using ropes; they made fairy houses as part of investigating habits, enjoyed a nature walk, observing and recording what they located, and made rafts to investigate how things float.
At the end of the day they had the chance to swim in the streams and waterfalls or toast marshmallows on the fire depending on their interests.
The aim was to connect the students with nature whilst challenging them to solve problems as a team and develop an adventurous spirit.
It was a fantastic confidence building event for our students whilst providing senior students with valuable leadership experience.
Our students were given opportunities for physical and mental challenges, all of which gently pushed them out of their comfort zones and helped them to build resilience.
We thank the staff and students from our secondary school for arranging another amazing day for our students.
