On Tuesday 7th November the students will be starting their new International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) unit titled “Balance”. To get the students into the new unit we will be going for a class hike onto Yeomposan, which is behind the reservoir at the back of the compound, to look at the evidence of balance in nature. Once we get to our destination the students will then practise “slacklining” using a line set low to the ground. An example of slacklining can be seen below.
We will be leaving school at 9 am and will be back at school in time for lunch. The students will need to wear comfortable clothing to hike in and a pair of trainers. If the students want to wear walking boots for the hike they can but they will need to also bring a pair of trainers for the slacklining. Students will also need to bring a water bottle. Please complete the permission form here so that your son/daughter can take part in the activity. If you have any questions please get in touch with me.
