Outdoor Week 2018


Outdoor Week 2018

This year the theme for Outdoor Week was Tall Ships, pupils in both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two spent the week carrying out in teams a range of survival activities such as: designing and creating their very own sail, den building in and around the school grounds, creating their very own ships from straws and designed Maritime medals. Throughout the week the children demonstrated great skills in leadership, team work, problem solving, resilience and determination. At the end of the week to celebrate the pupils took part in a traditional sing song.
