Pupils given a taste of the great outdoors

In May half term, pupils from Lakelands School took part in an exciting Meres and Mosses adventure camp at White Mere. The camp provided them with the opportunity to explore the local landscape through various activities that they may not normally get a chance to try.

For many of the children, the highlight of the camp was getting out on the mere and having a go at canoeing and sailing.

They also enjoyed a visit to Wood Lane nature reserve, where they spent time exploring the new hide and tried out fishing with a local charity - Get Hooked on Fishing.

In the evening, the group had a range of wildlife activities to keep them busy including small mammal trapping, pond dipping, leaf hammering and a bat walk. Pupils also got stuck in to fire building with a bushcraft session, including attempting it Ray Mear’s style with the bow drill method!

The camp was led in partnership between Shropshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB and Meres and Mosses LPS.
