Feeling Good Week – outdoor learning

The focus of this year’s Feeling Good Week at Abbey Primary has been  on how being outside in nature is beneficial for our mental health. Not needing an excuse to get outside, Year 6 donned their wellies last Friday and headed for the Nature Area for their briefing from Mr Astley. They were tasked with prepping the area designed for a barefoot sensory path, helping to build a new Hugelkultur spring bulb bed by planting some of the bulbs kindly donated by Abbey School families and creating a dead hedge border by the fence. They got stuck in to the tasks immediately, with coats quickly being shed, and absolutely loved the activities. As you can see from the photos, they did an amazing job and Mr Astley commented, “I was so impressed with how the children rose to the tasks and worked together. Year 6 this morning were UNBELIEVEABLE!”       Way to go Team Year 6!
