Section 5: Shield – research and appreciate other religions and cultures
Section 6: Camp craft – participate in the Y7 camp
Section 7: Rambling – participate in a hike

The scheme uses learning within the classroom, outside the classroom and beyond. It develops independent learning skills, promotes teamwork and develops moral and social understanding.
