Last week, over half term, Boro Active Explorers delivered two days of fun outdoor activities to children from the TS3 area as part of our BAE project: Boro Active Explorers is all about engaging children, families and schools in physical activities through outdoor learning and play.
On Tuesday, children came to our site here at MEC to pick, prepare and press apples making fresh apple juice which was enjoyed by one and all. They also had a chance to explore our forest school area and finished the day around our camp fire toasting marshmallows.
Then, on Thursday, the Explorers enjoyed a circular guided cycle ride from Teessaurus Park, along the River Tees to Maze Park and Tees Barrage before heading back to Teesaurus Park for a packed lunch and some organised games.
Nicky and Emily would like to thank MEC’s Mike and Dave for their help with the guided ride on Thursday and special thanks to all the families for making the two days successful events.
