Puffins outdoor activities
The Year 4 pupils were delighted to take part in a camping, archery, foraging and wild cooking day - on Friday the 21st June. They spent the day on a secluded, private campsite adjacent to the River Severn on the Isle Estate. There they learnt about the wildlife and plant life. They used great teamwork and some engineering skills to erect a giant Sami tepee, whilst learning about the origins of the shelter. Next they roamed the site, foraging for wood to build their own campfires. Later they took part in archery, made samosas and naan bread - which was toasted over fire pits. The children loved it! When I asked them what they enjoyed the most, they said "Everything!" "My favourite thing was foraging for sticks and making bread." Lexie "I liked the archery - using REAL arrows!" Zak.
John Muir Discovery Award
On 25th of June, all the Year 5 pupils from The Meadows joined Puffins Class and Year 5 Hawks on a walk to Bwyltai Woods to take part in our "Sharing Day". Our pupils had created and delivered their own activities (about nature and conservation) to groups of pupils from The Meadows. I was extremely proud of them, they were incredibly professional and knowledgeable about all the work we have done towards attaining the award. The Meadows pupils and teachers left very impressed and inspired! "A really good experience and I've made new friends from The Meadows School." Jack. Many thanks to the wonderful pupils who took part and to all the governors and parents who have helped support us in our endeavour to attain this prestigious environmental conservation award, for our children.
