I have worked on a multi activity day with year 7 pupils from St Matthews School in Birmingham on Thursday this week.
The event took place in the grounds of Southfields Farm, Coleshill and included team building tasks, mountain biking , archery and traversing.
I was involved in leading groups of children around on mountain bikes utilising the permissive bridleways and tracks around the farm land.
After initially spending time setting up the bikes to each individual child we set off to explore the fields around the farm. The children had chance to stop at a small pond and watch as dragon flies flew and hovered above the pond.
We were also lucky enough to observe a small turtle swimming around the pond. Upon seeing the turtle the children all fell silent as they were transfixed by the turtle gliding through the water in front of them.
Another lovely day spent in the outdoors.
