The children of Black Torrington, Bradford, and Highampton Primary Schools had an unforgettable time during their two-day adventure on Dartmoor and Bodmin on the 27th and 28th February. The event, organized by the schools, aimed to challenge and inspire the children while teaching them valuable skills and lessons about conservation, ecology, and staying safe in the great outdoors.
On the first day, the children navigated their way across the open moor using a map and compass. Staff and instructors closely supervised the children as they learned about tor formation and ecology. They also gained practical skills in navigation and safety while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Dartmoor.
The second day was even more exciting, as the children scrambled and weaseled their way over, round, and through rocks on Bodmin. The adrenaline-fueled activities included crawling through holes and finding a mysterious track. The children supported one another, made new friends, and had a lot of fun while preparing for their transition to secondary school.
One Yr 6 child shared, “I liked crawling through all the holes and finding the mysterious track, but my favourite part was meeting new people and making friends.”
The event was a huge success, as it not only provided the children with unforgettable experiences but also fostered a sense of camaraderie and team spirit. The schools are proud of their pupils’ achievements and look forward to organizing more exciting events like this in the future.
