Shute pupils spend night at school

Camp fire sleep-over helps class learn about working together

PUPILS at Shute Community Primary School stayed late after class – all night, in fact.

The youngsters slept over as part of a big outdoor adventure yesterday (Thursday).

They spent the evening learning about habitats – building dens, hunting bugs and learning woodcraft skills.

In addition to a barbecue around a camp fire, the children also used ingredients to hand to make their pack lunches for the following day.

Class 2 teacher Lucy Mumford said: “The evening at school ties in with our work on relationships – about fostering good co-operating, sharing and negotiating skills. But it’s also a great way to turn theoretical learning about habitats into practice.”

Head teacher Amanda Graham was delighted: “Our teachers are always prepared to go the extra mile – in this case sleeping the night at school – to give our children the kind of rounded education we aim for at Shute Community Primary School.”
