As a part of our topic about the ever changing climate we visited Ferry Meadows to absorb our local environment. Whilst there the children took part in a range of different activities.
Initially we went into the wooded area, where we took part in forest school activities. The children worked with their friends to create different dens using strong structures from fallen branches. Additionally, they had a chance to apply their tree climbing skills.
Next we split off into teams to take part in the orienteering course. The children were given the opportunity to navigate their way around ferry meadows following a map. In order to be successful the children had to orientate their map, before using the clues to discover the markers.
The children all worked very well during their orienteering and were rewarded with a chance to use the play park before a spot of lunch and heading back to school.
