Beacon Fell - 30th October 2019
We have had a fantastic time at Beacon Fell today. We have learnt so much and developed skills in various areas of the curriculum, whilst being able to appreciate the beautiful views that surrounded us.
We began the day by completing a nature trail which finished at the Summit. We were fortunate to have clear skies so we could see Heysham, the Lake District, Blackpool and many more areas clearly.
The children competed to make the best artwork using natural materials. They created crabs, crocodiles, birds nest, shelters and owls. Teamwork, communication and imagination was key for this competition.
On the way back down the fell, we used science equipment to find and classify different minibeasts. Despite the colder weather we were able to find lots of different creatures.
After lunch, we worked in teams to follow an orienteering course. Map skills were essential for this task. It was definitely a photo finish as both teams arrived back at the finish line at the same time.
Den building was our final activity. The children had to work in teams to build a den that was as waterproof as possible, it had to be comfortable inside, there had to be a kitchen area and it had to have some kind of sculpture on the outside. This was a very difficult task when you only had 30 minutes to complete..... The end results were amazing and I was very proud of the teamwork that I saw throughout the activity.
