Y5 enjoyed a visit to Folly Farm in May, for some learning outside the classroom.

Students enjoyed building a fire and toasting marshmallows and completing team building activities that encourage the break down of communication barriers.

Once back at the academy the class wrote their own trip reports about their experiences at Folly Farm Camp.

Here is the camp report from Joshua Muchenje and Ashton Edge.

'From 2nd – 4th May:

We travelled to the nature filled Folly Farm. For the first exciting two days we identified and recorded woodland and pond insects to make nature films with. We also made traps for voles and mice to put out overnight. On the night of the first day we went badger watching. On the third day we made shelters and campfires. Our favourite parts were when we had biscuits and hot chocolate, made shelters and campfires and went badger watching.'
