As part of their learning context, P5 have been actively working on achieving their own personal John Muir Award. As part of the Award the children have explored the school grounds and taken part in a variety of outdoor learning experiences, which they have thoroughly enjoyed. As well as exploring the school grounds, they have visited Holmehill, a local woodland area. Whilst visiting Holmehill the children had great fun searching for a ‘secret tunnel’, participated in a scavenger hunt and measured the ages of trees to compare with the trees back in the school grounds.
For our second outing we were lucky enough to have the support of Rosie who is a volunteer for TCV, she planned a mini-beast hunt and discussed air quality with the children. Thank you to all our volunteers who allowed us to visit Holmehill.
