Since September we have had our fair share of terrible weather but this has not prevented our children (and staff) enjoying learning in the outdoors. We have been exploring and learning through the strands of 'Map Skills', 'Teamwork', 'Problem Solving', 'Survival Skills' and 'Art in Nature'.
We have this year once again been nominated for a 'Green Hero Award' in Outdoor Education which could see our school walk away with yet another trophy to be proud of. We will find out on Friday 29th June so keep your fingers crossed.
