Ray Mears visits St. Mary's!

St Mary’s were thrilled to welcome Ray Mears, bush-skills expert and TV personality last Friday to talk to Year 6 about survival skills and tracking.  This was the culmination of Year 6’s survival challenge where the children learned how to build dens, light fires.  Mr Mears told the children many interesting facts, using the location of our outdoor classroom to share his experiences.  His close encounters with bears and snakes left the children gasping in admiration for the visiting star and Mr Mears himself was impressed with the behaviour, level of interest and good questioning skills of our pupils!
