Into the Woods!
Year 5 began their QE programme this week with a session in Belmont Woods.
This was a team building exercise designed to help the boys, both old and new, learn how to work as a team, learning about strengths and weaknesses, and appreciating each other. Shelters were built and marshmallows were toasted, and eaten round the campfire! They had a great time, as the video below shows.
The Queen Elizabeth (QE) Award is exclusive to QEH Juniors and is based on the principles of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. Boys take part in a variety of outdoor pursuits and voluntary activities throughout Years 5 and 6, culminating in an overnight camp on Exmoor at the end of Year 6.
