The Outdoor Classroom

Year 5 pupils build shelters as part of their search and rescue task. With their wellies and waterproofs at the ready, 115 year 5 pupils from Christ Church Academy set off for their residential trip to Laches Wood Outdoor Educational Centre. For 2 nights and 3 days the children concentrated on building friendships and encouraging teamwork, through activities such as, BMXing, rock climbing, orienteering and problem solving. Year 5 pupil Ella Chapman said ‘all the activities were fun but learning to balance my BMX over the see-saw was the best part of the week for me.’  The trip was organised by Head of Year 5 Mrs C Moor who said that ‘despite the bad weather, the children have given 100% in every activity and have thoroughly enjoyed the trip.’ For many of the children this was their first time away from home – well done everyone!
