Year 7 Expedition

The Year 7s were treated to some hot and sunny weather for their adventure. The relatively short stay meant that they had much work to do, but they set about their tasks enthusiastically and without any delay. The woods we were staying in offered plenty of resources which meant that the shelters they built were amongst some of the best I have seen. Although thisĀ process took longer than they thought, there was still time for a bush kitchen to be built and supper to be prepared and made. The year group worked well, and it was hugely pleasing to see everyone helping each other out as the sun set and darkness fell. The sun rose the next morning and some tired faces emerged from their shelters. However, their spirits were still high as we they munched in bacon sandwiches, fruit and plenty of liquids. Due to the heat, the walk was significantly shorter than the one we planned, but even so it was still challenging enough and atĀ 3.00 pm they made it back to school, tired, but pleased with their efforts. The Year 8 challenge is yet to be decided, and we will need to do a few mini expeditions next year before we decide what it is they attempt. Needless to say trust and teamwork are at the forefront of that decision. We will wait and see!
