"Year 5 took part in a ‘Badger Bush Craft’ workshop. This was a whole day of practical activities led by Phil Brown, a specialist in outdoor learning. Following this a number of children together with their families were invited to take part in a Saturday workshop to learn survival skills, building shelters, lighting fires etc. This was part of an extended services project."
