Outdoor Learning at St Francis

Ullswater – The Lake District – 5 day residential

November saw Year 6 travelling to Ullswater in the Lake District to enjoy a week of adventurous, outside activities. The Outward Bound Centre provides an experience, which develops independence, resilience and a love for nature and the outdoors in young people. The children took part in a variety of activities, which included canoeing, hill walking, rock climbing, exploring tunnels, gorge walking, orienteering, rowing and team building games, all in the amazing and beautiful setting of Cumbria. Year 6 had an amazing time and it has been a joy to see how much they have matured and grown in confidence in just one week! A big thank-you to all parents who turned out at 4:40am on the Monday morning to wave the children off and picked up 8:30 on the Friday. Without your support we could not provide the children with such a rich experience.
