It’s been a busy start to the term with lots of children venturing beyond the school gates as our exciting programme of trips and adventures made a very welcome return.
Year 1 spent the day at Bishops Wood as part of their Science topic on plants. The children had a great time using their senses to explore the plants and trees in the woodland area and finding out what plants need to grow. They also used their knowledge about the parts of a plant to create plant diagrams out of natural materials and discovered why bees and insects are so important. A particular highlight was becoming little buzzy bees for part of the day!
Year 3 enjoy outward bounds
The next group to enjoy a trip was Year 3, who spent two very energetic days at Boundless Outdoor Centre in West Malvern. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to enjoy the great outdoors and take on a whole range of adventures, including bush craft, the low ropes assault course, rock climbing, zip wires and much more!
The children demonstrated fantastic team work and really developed their problem-solving skills. We were very proud of how the children embraced the activities and really pushed themselves to overcome any fears to complete each challenge.
A fantastic field trip for Year 5
Year 5 have also been out and about exploring and were delighted to embark on their first field trip of the year. The children visited Upton upon Severn and The Malvern Hills to gather some important information to complete a physical and human geography project on the area. The children walked through Upton looking at the towns flood defences and places of interest for tourists to the area. Up on the hills the children investigated vegetation around the paths and compared the topography of Herefordshire to Worcestershire. Whilst walking through Upton the children were excited by a surprise visit from Mrs Phillips who popped in to get a guided tour from Upton resident Mrs Redman.
