2016-17 - A year in review

BBEY LENS June 2017 Amazing Frank Chapman! Away from home for the first time Vol 3: Issue No. Forty nine Excellence Through Partnership


RESIDENTIAL We were all really excited to go on a trip to Frank Chapman, in Bewdley. After arriving, our first activity was a choice of ‘Woodland detectives’, ‘bushcraft and food from the woods’ or ‘pond dipping’. The food was ‘pretty good’ including a selection of cobs, fish fingers and chips with our favourites being, spaghetti bolognese and the fish fingers. (Puddings were fab too!) Also, we really liked the orienteering because of finding things, especially if you were lost in the wild. We also really enjoyed the pond dipping. It was something we hadn’t done before and we found two species of newt! Some of the children were snoring madly during the night [Ed - staff need a medal, the last child dropped off to sleep at 3.10am on the first night]. Whilst bush crafting, some children got really attached to their dough; others got chased by the cows! We’d give this a Tripadvisor score 10/10! By Maisie & Rory in 2PB WARLEY WOODS World Environment Day is organised around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2017, ‘Connecting People to Nature’, urges us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. The celebration of this day provided us with an opportunity to help individuals, enterprises and communities in preserving and enhancing the environment. We chose to raise donations for Warley Woods Community Trust which helps to 'preserve' and 'enhance' the woods on our doorstep. All children and staff wore something green or brown and raised a terrific £210 for nature next door. Well done us!
