Out and About with Mr Hopkins (10.6.22)
The summer term is always the busiest term of the year for us here in PE and Outdoor Education at SBU. We always seem to be out and about experiencing lots of different activities.
Here is just a quick snapshot of what we have been up to this week:
The John Muir award saw Mr Mullins class explore Bickerton Caves and the Sandstone trail around Cheshire. This included visits to the Queen’s cave and Musket’s Hole plus seeing some amazing highland cows!
Mr Roscoe’s class visited Healey Dell in Rochdale to find the amazing tree stump carvings in the dell, visit the Fairy dell and dare to cross the river on the old mill ruins!
Miss Crossley’s class went on a natural history expedition into the jungle where they found a long lost waterfall, discovered some prehistoric life (tadpoles), climbed the walls of an age old excavation site and explored a deep, dark forest being careful not to disturb the bears!
Miss Crossley’s class have also been out orienteering, navigating their way around the local area and being rewarded for their success with a short play on the adventure playground.
In school we have a group of pupils who are dedicating themselves to improving their fitness each lunchtime and breaktime – coming into the school gym and doing a variety of workouts each week. The least popular is Ab day!
Finally, fitness wise Miss O’Brien’s class visited Collyhurst boxing gym for the first of a series of sessions to build fitness, skills and discipline. This was a great experience for our pupils to train like professional boxers and understand the discipline involved in being the best you can be.
What a great week, back to it again on Monday!
