Today J3 enjoyed a Bushcraft Day, which encourages our pupils to develop life skills outside the usual curriculum.
Bushcraft Day is an outdoor activity day designed for the pupils to work together in teams to try new challenges. The four tasks they attempted were: building and making fires in lots of different ways; shelter building and testing them for comfort and resistance to water; building and using a stretcher and purifying water.
When Monty was asked how the morning had been he said “It was brilliant. We made a really cool shelter and it was more like glamping as we put a TV in there to watch!” - the TV was a piece of rope in a square!
Mrs Jones added, "J3 are having a really lovely time, and working within their year group bubbles. They’ve remembered to sanitise hands between activities and are all enjoying the fresh air!"
