Outdoor Classroom

19 October, 2015

On Tuesday 6th October, the geography classroom was much larger (and tiring) than usual. With 112 year 7 seven pupils, 10 staff and mile upon mile of Lancashire countryside, it was certainly a day that will remain firmly in the memories of those involved.

The pupils, in small groups, were given some challenges, a map and a sense of direction in order to reach their destination of Beacon Hill where lunch was greatly deserved. As well as working as part of a team, the pupils (some for the first time) experienced the heart of our subject in its full glory.

Yes, there were tired legs and a couple of wrong turns, but I have to say that the standard of behaviour and team ethic was exceptional. The positive comments from a couple of walkers out for a peaceful stroll (sorry about that) highlighted this. The year 7 pupils showed us that they are true ‘Bowlanders’.
