On Thursday, a group of Year 5 pupils (along with Mr Watters and Mrs Toor) had a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a day of education in the wilderness! The day was hosted by the organisation 'Wilderness Schooling' in the stunning grounds of Wallington. Whilst there, the pupils worked outside for most of the day. They explored the environment for vocabulary inspiration before learning to write individual and group poems. After this, we planned performances, listened to magical stories and played games around the camp fire! The pupils absolutely loved the day – it was a joy to see them enjoying the outdoor learning experience and watching their confidence flourish as the day progressed!
