PUPILS got a chance to explore the great outdoors on trips with their school.

A total of 57 Year 5 children from Stamford Junior School recently travelled to the Peak District for a residential trip at Edale Youth Hostel in Derbyshire.

During their stay they took part in a range of activities, including abseiling from a 50ft bridge, weaselling, canoeing, obstacle courses, a night hike and problem-solving tasks.

A further 30 pupils from Years 4, 5 and 6 visited the Conkers Discovery and Waterside Centre near Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire for the first weekend activity of the academic year.

Pupils explored the grounds of the Conkers Centre and enjoyed a range of fun and exciting outdoor activities under glorious October sunshine.

Teacher Michelle Hewett said: “All the children thoroughly enjoyed the activities. The particular highlight though was the 250m barefoot multi-sensory walk.”
