Stour val­ley arts trip


Last week 48 year 7 stu­dents took part in a day of explo­ration and arts & crafts mak­ing at Kings Wood in Ash­ford. This was an amaz­ing oppor­tu­nity for our pupils to expe­ri­ence art and craft in an out­doors envi­ron­ment. Pupils par­tic­i­pated in an artist led walk, view­ing and expe­ri­enc­ing the sculp­tures within the woods. Pupils then worked in teams to build and cre­ate habi­tats for wood­land crea­tures. It was a fan­tas­tic expe­ri­ence and the pupils par­tic­u­larly enjoyed the ‘cre­at­ing’ activ­ity work­ing in teams to real­ize their ideas.

Our pupils demon­strated their car­ing and thought­ful nature when they were con­fronted with an unex­pected event. Com­ing across an injured dog in the woods, our pupils alerted their guide. The dog, who had been miss­ing for a few days, was soon reunited with its owner.

A great day had by all, well done year 7.
