On Tuesday 17th May, Year 3 went on a school trip to Bedgebury. They learnt all about sustainable forests, which is very closely linked with the work we have done in school on rainforests and sustainable living.
The sun shone down as the children carried out a range of activities from bark rubbing, to tree identification and cone collecting. There were lots of practical learning activities linked to the tree cycle, forest sustainability and conservation. The children were encouraged to think independently and discuss in groups, as well as lots of physical activity.
The day was a huge success. Charlie B said, 'My favourite bit was when we had to hunt for cards and then spread the word about forest sustainability.' The children thoroughly enjoyed their day out in the beautiful Bedgebury Forest and have learnt a lot to bring back to school.
Thank you to all the lovely children and the Year 3 team, including Nurse Izzy and Mrs Robinson, who came to help.
