BEACON FELL GEOGRAPHY AND
Children in Fairsnape, made their own sandwiches (after learning about healthy eating) and headed up the fell – sandwiches in hand! After filling their stomachs, we set off on a hike, following the map and tracks, the children collected items from their scavenger hunt list. A range of different leaves, sticks and stones were collected along the way as we looked at the signs of Autumn across the beautiful Fell. Staff and children had a great time and learnt so much!
