Year 1 Survival Skills Afternoon. Thursday 22nd November 2018

Children had a really enjoyable afternoon today with Mr Farish, one of our school governors, learning about survival skills including making dens and packing up sleeping bags and mats into rucksacks. They were able to try on camouflage clothing. Mr Farish then conducted a question and answer session where children had written questions using question marks. Here is a gallery of photos.
