Year 7 Woodland Welly Ramble

Year 7 went on a ‘woodland welly ramble’ today in Epping Forest. Pupils have really missed out by not being to go on trips because of the restrictions but are so lucky to have direct access to the beautiful forest adjacent to the school. It was a crisp, autumn morning that was perfect for a power walk. They conquered a few hills, navigated through bramble and heard the birds tweeting in the trees above. It was uplifting in so many ways and it was lovely to see the girls chatting and making close bonds. Dylan and Sophie made ‘Braeside’ from all the foraged sticks and then Year 7 made a ‘campfire’ type arrangement. Chloe said ‘This is so fun, we get to be with our friends and walk in the forest. I loved it.’
