Youngsters in Years 1 & 2 at Bootham Junior School are excited about their outdoor adventure on Friday, 28th June. The children will be sleeping-over in tents, in the school hall, having spent the evening toasting food around the campfire, going on night walks, orienteering and shelter building in the Forest School area of the grounds, and rounding things off with goodnight story telling.
Head teacher, Dr Sue Pattison, said, “Weaving outdoor education into all aspects of learning is a particular feature of life at Bootham. In this way we can help the children to learn the lessons of co-operation and team building. The children are set new challenges and we cement the formal lessons of, for example geography and maths, into real life situations.”
