Year 1 Trip to The Parkridge Centre, Brueton Park, Solihull

Tuesday, 17 October 2017

Year 1 had a very exciting trip to Brueton Parks Parkridge Centre. Luckily it was a beautiful sunny day. The children had the opportunity to use professional equipment to measure the amount of sunshine, wind force and humidity. We learnt how to use a compass correctly and went on a walk following instructions. The children had to use the compass in order to walk around the park. At crossroads, we had to find either North, South, East or West in order to find the teddy bears picnic area.

We sat round a campfire in the woods and listened to a story. Can you think of any stories involving bears? The children also built shelters using the natural resources around us for their bear dens. We hunted for different foods in order to make a porridge mix to feed the hungry bears. After the bears were fed, it was time for our own lunch and a lovely walk back to school.

We had a wonderful day and would like to thank the parents who helped us on the day.
