Oak Class - Team Development Tasks

Pupils' second day at Carroty Wood started early with plenty of time to run around before breakfast.

Part of the real benefits of coming on a school residential trip such as Carroty Wood is the time pupils have to interact, talk and play between activities in a safe environment free from traffic, television and computer games.

Team challenges throughtout the day included bridge building and puzzle challenges, as well as an activity that aimed to get pupils thinking about the choices people make to make ends meet in the third world, this linking into discussion on the Fairtrade movement and a more Christian outlook on the world.


The children learned about the 'C's of team work: communication, cooperation and concentration. Everyone worked together really well and impressed their instructors with how well they cooperated.

More outward bound activities tomorrow with much more mud, water and fun.
