Outdoor learning!

What an exciting week Willow have had! On Tuesday Willow class had the wonderful opportunity to partake in adventure activities at the PettyPool centre. They completed three activities – archery, wall climbing and crate stacking. Two of these activities involved children rooting for each other as they were brave enough to get up high in their harnesses. I am extremely proud of them, especially as they all worked incredibly well in their teams. When some children were unsure whether they wanted to complete the activities they supported and encouraged each other. All the pupils in Willow had learnt some excellent team building skills and also demonstrated their motivation and determination to try new things and succeed in the tasks. Well done!! 🙂

On Monday this week I had arranged for Willow class to visit the Lion Salt Works as part of our Geography Topic. As well as learning about the local history of the Salt Mines – including how salt was produced and the working conditions in the mines, they learnt some vital mapping skills as they went on a ‘hunt’ using clues and map coordinates. They identified different map symbols and looked at historical maps.
