Stour valley arts trip
- Written by Miss K Sherman
Last week 48 year 7 students took part in a day of exploration and arts & crafts making at Kings Wood in Ashford. This was an amazing opportunity for our pupils to experience art and craft in an outdoors environment. Pupils participated in an artist led walk, viewing and experiencing the sculptures within the woods. Pupils then worked in teams to build and create habitats for woodland creatures. It was a fantastic experience and the pupils particularly enjoyed the ‘creating’ activity working in teams to realize their ideas.
Our pupils demonstrated their caring and thoughtful nature when they were confronted with an unexpected event. Coming across an injured dog in the woods, our pupils alerted their guide. The dog, who had been missing for a few days, was soon reunited with its owner.
A great day had by all, well done year 7.
