As pupils enter Year 9 they will be settling into new form groups. To focus their attention on their new groups and to challenge them to forge productive working relationships from the outset, Year 9 enjoyed a day of team building on Wednesday 12th September.
The day, called a Wilderness Day, was designed and run by the Hidden Woods company in Farleigh Woods, five miles east of Bath.
The objectives for the day were:-
The activities for the day included learning how to build a shelter, light a fire, using various different techniques, and to put the fire to good use by baking bread.
Head of Year 9 at King Edward’s School, Mr Jon Kean, commented: "This is a really good way for everyone to get to know one another, have some fun and learn some really useful survival skills. Our thanks go to Hidden Woods who have put together an excellent course and taught all of us, staff and pupils, some excellent bush craft skills."
