A last day to remember and very different from our other 2 days. Blustery but not bad enough to have to go elsewhere. It has got wetter and nearly all the leaves have gone.Hopefully, this provided a day we will never forget. Mud! Mud! Mud!
Thankyou Carla, Bobby, Yasmin, Elicia, Moses, Yusuf, Nada, Oluwatomi, Ellianna, Jerome and Maryam. It was fun!
A second day for Ibrahim, Jose, Mia, Aishah, Daniel, Adiba, Mohammed, Lyna, Kayden, Lujaynah,Dima and Kaleb. We changed our base today and found a great place to build shelters using fallen logs and branches. Then after lunch and hot chocolate it was time to explore, climb, scramble, paddle and eventually get splashed by the waterfall. We've still got a day to go!!
As the seasons change, this group really noticed the difference in the way the forest looks at this time of year. Our previous visit was over a month ago and the autumn colours were really evident as we explored the site.
Nada, Zoe, Niola, Abdul, Mehdi, Liam, Aweys, Murtaza, Elijah, Nevaeh and Taha all enjoyed their second day at Alderley Edge. After some games and shelter building, we made a swing and enjoyed a long walk involving lots of climbing and ending up at the waterfall. Today, however , it was so dry that there was only a trickle of water in the stream ! Better luck next time!
This was the second time for Elliana, Elicia,Yasmin, Jokubus, Bobby, Carla, Jerome, Maryam, Oluwatomi, Yusuf, Moses and Nada.
The group worked really well together and had an action packed day playing new games, exploring the ponds then climbing and scrambling before finally ending up at the waterfall.
This term we are spreading our days out more so that each group sees the Forest in different seasons.
This group was Lyna, Ibrahim, Jose, Daniel, Aishah, Mia, Dima, Kaleb, Muhammad, Kayden, Lujaynah and Adiba. The weather was amazing and allowed us plenty of time to practise our shelters and explore.
A first time for this group and what a lovely Autumn day we got!!
Niola, Zoe, Nada, Elijah, Maria, Mehdi, Liam, Neveah, Abdul, Taha, Aweys and Murtaza had much to explore.
An action packed day with games, shelter making, hot chocolate, pond exploring, tree climbing, caving, cliff top views, climbing and scrambling.
What a great team, helping each other all the way and Munzer helping out too.
Can't wait for the next time , next month!!
The first groups of the year began this week.
This one was Elliana, Oluwatomi, Maryam, Jokubus, Nada, Moses, Jerome, Bobby, Carla, Yasmin, Elicia and Yusuf.
It was too windy to risk going right into the woods as there is a risk of falling branches, so we rerouted to Bollington and a trip to White Nancy. The ridge walk in the wind was exhilarating and the views were breathtaking!!
Back at school, a chance to reflect on our day in the tipi with a cup of hot chocolate!
A good day for everyone!!
This groups second day was a scorcher!!
Up in the woods though it was very pleasant in the shade and we had time to make shelters and play games. Then we found the Dragon's breath and the Little People's village which had been destroyed!!
After we had rebuilt it, it was time to go exploring and climbing!!
Today's group was Atyab, Zuhayra, Mustafa, Soheli, Shahd, Didan, Riyad, Abdulateef, Heba, Retal, Kordae and Sumayah. What a fabulous day!! Thanks everyone! Enjoy the photos.
Here we have Kyson, Ziyad, Hajira, Jannat, Zeeshan, Michael, Marwa, Aaliyah, Jehad, Njla, Abdullah and Nancy.
Our second day was quite windy which meant putting up shelters was quite tricky. However we persevered and were pleased with the results. There were a few challenges, like going right into the cave and standing under the waterfall but our new suits proved to be invaluable when doing this !
One more day to go!
Day 2 for Hassan, Zainab, Mohamoud, Jallah, Adriela, Alaiyna, Apo, Ima, Taijo, Daniela, Amani and Essam started off very cold. A snowball fight warmed us up then we explored some ponds which were icy.
After lunch on the bus we went for a long walk, climbing rocks and down steep hills. We ended up at the waterfall which was fun to button up our waterproofs and stick our heads under!!
It was a very tiring but exciting day!
The first day for Njla, Jannat, Abdullah, Zeeshan, Marwa, Michael, Ziyad , hajira, Aaliyah, Jehad, Nancy and Kyron was a lot of fun.
We started on the school site with some games and then drove up to Alderley Edge.
There we explored the ponds, made shelters, had lunch and hot chocolate before exploring the woods. We went climbing and walking up streams before ending up at the waterfall.
A brilliant day!!
The first day for Jallah, Mohamoud,Amani, Apo, Zainab, Hassan, Taijo, Daniela,Alaiyna, Adriela, Essam and Ima was warmer than any session we had in February!
This meant we could play games and build shelters before lunch. Then it was hot chocolate time and a chance to explore the area we were in.
Then we went for a long walk to view sights, climb and scramble as well as visit the dark cave.
After a slow start everyone really got into the session and can't wait for the next one!
The last day for this group was the most exciting yet. A covering of snow when we got there was soon followed by further snowfall giving the woods a magical feeling.
Khalid, Sophie, Gurtejal, Mohammed, Maheen, Neveao, Shad, Ali, Ayaan and Rami had a day to remember!
