Whittlesey pupils enjoy an eco adventure at Stibbington
HUNTING for mini-beasts and creating art with forest materials were just some of the highlights of an eco adventure enjoyed by pupils from the Park Lane Primary School at Whittlesey.
Forty children from Year 4 enjoyed a week’s residential course at Stibbington, with the science themed trip also including pond dipping, a pirate treasure hunt, and badger watching.
School IT assistant Lorraine Quince said: “We had a marvellous time, the children worked really hard. They spent the days taking part in various outdoor activities, and even when it was very cold, they were happy to wrap up warm and get outside.
“We went into Sulehay forest to see the badger setts and look for mini-beasts. The children also created designs with natural materials, including our school logo, a smiley face, and a picture of a giant shell.
“Another highlight was going on to a bridge over the A1 to count the traffic. During the evenings, they enjoyed a talent competition, and making mini beast masks.
