Outdoor learning for Native Americans topic

Pupils from Maes Yr Haul Primary School spent the day with us learning how to be in tune with the natural environment as part of their Native Americans topic… they looked up, down and around to explore their surroundings to see what they could see, smell and hear and learnt about natural medicines. They learnt how to build shelters using only the natural resources around them – and got inside to test they were waterproof, and lit fires using lots of different methods.
Well done everyone! πŸ”₯ πŸ‘

Pupils get outdoors to learn about survival

Great teamwork & great survival skills by pupils from Ton Yr Ywen Primary School today who had fun learning about survival! πŸ‘
