Year 7 pupils enjoyed a fantastic teambuilding day at Gisburn Forest this week.

The day started with an orienteering task.


It was a delight to see the keenness and competitive spirit of the children as they worked hard to learn and put into practise new navigational skills using just a map and compass.  They rose admirably to the challenge and were suitably proud of themselves as they found the control points.

After a beautiful walk, appreciating the stunning surroundings, and a well-deserved lunch,

the class produced some fantastic natural artwork, inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy.

Their imaginations were truly engaged as they produced a wide range of designs.

The final task of the day was to identify a range of leaves in the forest, encouraging the children to look closely at the nature surrounding them.

An ice-lolly stop was greatly appreciated by all before heading back to school at the end of a wonderful and enjoyable day.  Well done, Year 7.
