Our New Tipi
The Tipi is already a massive hit with pupils and adults alike. So far we have been connecting with our patch of nature through den building, hammocks and digging, some classes have even tried fire lighting. After half term we aim for all our pupils to experience firefighting including cooking on open fire and beginning to work with tools in activities such as whittling. The smiles in these photos show how the freedom of learning in the outdoors really does wonders for wellbeing and happiness!
