Mr Goodburn's Outdoor Education sessions take place every Tuesday within the school grounds. Selected children from Years 4 and 5 will be working during the Autumn Term learning new practical skills whilst developing team building and communication skills.
So far, the children have worked together to construct dens, fell trees and make camp fires, all under the close supervision of Mr Goodburn. In order to fulfill these tasks, children are being taught how to safely use tools including sheath knives, loppers, secateurs, strikers, bill hooks, bow saws and axes!
The aim of these sessions is to support the children to develop their physical literacy, communication skills and improve their determination and resilience in tasks.
See below for a sample of images of what Mr Goodburn's groups have been up to during this first half term!
