Working For Arthog Outreach

Canoe – leaf Bingo in progress

Working for Arthog Outreach is always fun and this my first real week back was an absolute pleasure! I took a group of Year 3’s canoeing and a Group of Year 5’s hillwalking and there was much laughter all around.

Canoeing at Simpsons Pool With Year 3’s
A lovely day out in rafted canoes at Simpsons Pool. We played lots of games, raced each other and a little bit of exploring to shrieks of laughter as the teams got to grips with manoeuvring the canoes. We played leaf bingo which was a real hit with the young people and we have a few more ideas to improve the session for next week.

Hill Waking On the Wrekin With Year 5’s
We made the best of the wet weather and made for the trees for an¬†‘off the beaten track’ ascent of the mighty Wrekin. As we ascended, we¬†discussed how it was formed, who lived hill fort and what life would have been like as well as sampling elderberries, blackberries and blueberries. If that wasn’t enough we found a rope swing and visited the remain of the Roman Village at Wroxeter. It was an action packed day and enjoyed by all the group who were keen to do more in the outdoors.
