Yoxford And Peasenhall – 1st Week

The first week of the new 1st Fressingfield School Scout Section at Yoxford and Peasenhall Primary went down well with children and adults alike. Finding our way was the theme, with an introduction to scouting – games and activities around the first rule of the Scout Law “A Scout is to be trusted”.

Skills for life, included map reading and map symbol BINGO!

In 2016, the Times Educational Supplement (TES) wrote an article which suggested that children who joined Scouts and Guides - and benefitted from outdoors experiences and independent learning as a result - had better mental health in adulthood.  The below article continues in that theme, stating that where scouting is embedded in school curriculum pupils reap longer term benefits.
