Outdoor education at Millfield Primary is a high priority from Nursery to Year 6. Our very youngest children spend at least half a day a week outdoors doing Woodland Wednesday and by the time they leave us, our year 6 should be competent journeying on water in canoes and kayaks, be competent navigators on the hills, being able to read a variety of OS maps and navigate using compasses and be able to complete at least a 15km walk.
It is expected that all children take part in residential experiences leading up to a whole weeks camp under canvas by year 6. To enable this, the school has invested heavily in providing with quality equipment from
Thermal underwear, Canadian canoes and camping equipment to take up to 30 fully equipped children away.
