All year round

Following on from these activities, you will put you detective skills into practise to solve our special CSI Carymoor scenario: Who killed the pigeon? As well as encouraging teamwork and communication, this day also supports parts of the KS2 science curriculum, with links to food chains, adaptations and habitats.


This day is in Price Band 1.


Feedback for this day includes:


"Besides teambuilding, they learnt to appreciate nature and take a step back and just listen."  St Michael's Academy, March 22


"All the activities were really engaging. Beth was really enthusiastic and her love of nature really rubbed off on the children. Children were so engaged a little bit of rain didn't even dampen their spirits. The activities were well resourced and they loved the little games in between to break up the activities. To improve- we wish we could've stayed longer!" Wellsprings Primary, March 22
