After two years during which no trips were organized due to COVID restrictions, our CE1, CE2, CM1 and CM2 pupils from Sadyba elementary school had the chance to spend a few days in the wilderness. Surrounded by nature, they got to enjoy the fresh air, participate in various activities and share a lot of fun moments!
From June 8th to 10th, our CE1 pupils were the first to go on an adventure! On the first day, after a departure at 8 AM and a bus ride to Pilawa, a small town located 62 km from Warsaw, the children were able to settle into their rooms at the Stowarzyszenie Akademia Łucznica and were divided into groups for the activities that they immediately started.
Throughout their three-day stay, and with the guidance of the artists from the center, they participated in a variety of workshops that included creating ceramics and photograms, as well as learning about batik (printing on fabric) and glass painting techniques.
In the evening, after dinner, it was time to relax and have fun. The children were able to play board games together and even spent some time around a campfire.
From June 20th to 24th, the CE2 class left Warsaw! For their field trip which focused on environmental and civic issues, the children had to travel more than 300 km to reach Serwy, a small village located close to the Lithuanian and Belorussian borders.
In a center located next to a lake and a forest, the pupils were able to enjoy a variety of sports activities in the great outdoors, like rock climbing, kayaking, orienteering, tree climbing and biking.
Within this green setting, they also had the opportunity to observe the aquatic and forest environments in which they were immersed and to study them from an ecological and scientific perspective. The pupils thus reflected on the unity and diversity of the living plant and animal world that surrounded them, while questioning the human activities that are carried out on the environment.
CM1 and CM2 classes:
From June 20th to 24th, it was also the time for our CM1 and CM2 pupils to take to the air for a field trip dedicated to water sports! After travelling to the northwest of Poland, they arrived at the Tarda reception center, which is located in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship at about 230 km from Warsaw.
Thanks to the lake and the forest bordering the center, the children were able to explore an environment that was ideal for observing and studying the fauna and flora. And just like their CE2 classmates, they enjoyed various outdoor activities, which mainly involved water sports: they were for example able to navigate on the water in kayaks, sailboats or even boats, but also to practice archery and tree climbing!
