On 3 May, forty-four Year 5 pupils from eight local primary schools visited Christ’s Hospital School to take part in an exciting treasure hunt, run by The Exploration Society. Christ’s Hospital School organised the event and hosted pupils from the following primary schools: St Mary’s C of E Primary in Horsham, Warnham C of E Primary, The Laurels Primary in Worthing, Eastbrook Primary Academy in Brighton, North Lancing Primary, Sompting Village Primary, Waterfield Primary in Bewbush and Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Primary School in Crawley.
On arrival, the children gathered in Christ’s Hospital School’s quadrangle to watch the pupils’ daily band parade, which they appeared to enjoy thoroughly. They then set off on a fun-packed afternoon of outdoor activities, involving games, puzzles, map reading and more, all while engaging in a fantastic treasure hunt in the stunning grounds of Christ’s Hospital School.
“These games provide an excellent way for pupils to develop their leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills, as they must work to solve puzzles and navigate the game area. Our activities also provide a great opportunity for pupils to experience new environments in an engaging and creative way,” said one of the organisers from The Exploration Society.
At the end of the afternoon’s fun, the children were treated to a hot meal and cake in the school’s impressive Dining Hall. Did the children enjoy the event? “It was a bit like being at a really fun party; but we also had to use our brain, so we were learning while having fun,” said one of the Year 5 pupils. Mission accomplished!
