Oak Class lead the way
With the current restrictions, it is not possible to do our favourite thing - going out on trips - but, in common with many people, we are enjoying discovering what is on our doorstep instead. On Tuesday 13th October, Oak Class pioneered the first in a series of walks around the catchment area, the Longden School North Walk, taking in Annscroft, Great Lyth and Exford's Green. Walking started in bright sunlight across fields off Plealey Lane towards Arscott. After a serious encounter with deep mud during which one child had to be rescued minus a wellie, the children enjoyed lunch perched on a tump above Annscroft - thank you to Helen Davies for allowing us to use her field. The walk then dropped down into Annscroft before climbing gently up to Great Lyth, finishing with an exciting trek through a maize forest and a slightly damp return to school. Well done to all the children who took turns as walk leaders, navigating their way around 6km of beautiful countryside and the checkers who made sure we were on the right route and arrived home safely.
