The Summer term has got off to a very busy and exciting one for Class 3 pupils at Oulton First School. The Year 4 children had a wonderful three day residential visit to Stanley Head outdoor activity centre in Leek whilst the Year 3 children enjoyed two day visits to nearby Kibblestone.

Activities at Kibblestone included tracking, shelter building, archery, crate stacking, artificial caving & bouldering and a challenge course. At Stanley Head, the children learnt how to make fires and build waterproof shelters. They went mountain biking, used the climbing wall and participated in an obstacle trail with a blindfold on. A fantastic time was had by all and provided cross curricular learning opportunities.
