Year 7 pupils spent a very enjoyable team building day at Gisburn Forest. The rain didn’t dampen their spirits as they started the day with an orienteering activity. They worked in small groups to solve the clues, with many groups even returning so quickly that they were challenged to find additional checkpoints.
Lunch was followed by a wonderful walk in the forest, one of the highlights of which was inspired by this week’s National Nature Art Week. Pupils had studied Andy Goldsworthy, the English sculptor, photographer and environmentalist and worked together to produce their very own versions of nature art. We were very impressed with the end results and it was fantastic to hear what an amazing day they had all enjoyed together. Well done, Year 7!
