Pupils explore the community during 'Challenge Week'

IMG 8368Staff at Woodlands Academy went a step further than the traditional end of term Sports Day this year when they introduced pupils to a 'Challenge Week', incorporating various areas of East Lincolnshire.

They started the week by exploring the North Wolds with a Giant Orienteering competition that involved the four 'houses' working their way around the check points to collect tokens for their teams. Map reading skills were essential, combined with calculation and a vast amount of teamwork.

Pupils then had the opportunity to choose between visiting Skegness for a variety of sporting competitions, travelling to Horncastle for a Bargain Hunt challenge, or partaking in a YouTube ‘Most Views’ competition. The group that went to Skegness enjoyed beach cricket and paddling in the sea, whilst those in Horncastle had £5 each to buy an ‘antique’ and sell it on for the greatest profit.

Later in the week, pupils visited Tattershall Lakes for a range of activities before a Retro Sports Day that engaged various games from yesteryear, concluding with a Rounders game to end the term.

Well done to all the staff for organising and to the pupils for taking part.
