Pupils from Southflelds Junior School, Hillfields, Coventry

Pupils from Southflelds Junior School, Hillfields, Coventry, are enjoying a term-time stay away from city life for the next two weeks at a " camp site school" in the Warwickshire countryside. Forty-eight of them are attending a field-study course, organised by the school. They have pitched camp in the middle of a field at Holt Farm, Napton-on-the-Hill, near Southam.
After an early call in the morning and a country-style breakfast, the children, aged 10 and 11, take part in country rambles, boating on the canal and visiting nearby farms and quarries. " The object of the course is to give the children a chance to find out about the countryside generally, and to get to know the country code, " said Mr. D. H. Thomas, the headmaster, " Most of them live in the centre of the city.and have very little chance of coming out and visiting the countryside. " We hope we re also doing something for racial harmony year. Half the children who come out here are immigrants, and we feel we re giving children of all nationalities a chance to learn to live together for a time." Twelve children at a time spend three days at the campwhere they are accommodated in caravans and tents with a marquee " cook house" and eating hall. Cooking, washing-up and cleaning chores are shared among the children and the four teachers who are supervising them on the course.
" The country air has certainly done wonders for their appetites, " said Mr. Thomas. " They re eating us out of house and home. And the childrens verdict? " Smashing, " said 11-y ear-old Manjit Singh. " This is the first time I ve ever been to stay in the countryside. It took a bit of getting used to at firstsleeping in a tent and having lessons in the open air, but its so nice to be away from all the noise and pollution of the city. I think I ll become a farmer when I grow up." " The foods great as well, " added Charanjit Singh, aged 11. " We ve all had a great time and will be so sorry to leave. I think we ve learned more out here than w

"Pupils from Southfields Junior School, Hillfields, Coventry, embrace the wonders of nature during their term-time stay at a 'camp site school' in the picturesque Warwickshire countryside. With excitement and curiosity in their eyes, forty-eight ten and eleven-year-olds embark on a field-study course meticulously organized by their school. Nestled amidst the tranquil surroundings of Holt Farm, Napton-on-the-Hill near Southam, these city-dwelling children find solace away from the bustling urban life. Each day begins with an early call followed by a hearty country-style breakfast that fuels them for adventures ahead. Guided rambles through lush landscapes, leisurely boating on serene canals, and visits to nearby farms and quarries fill their days with exploration. Headmaster Mr. D. H. Thomas explains that this immersive experience aims to acquaint these young minds with the beauty of nature while instilling respect for the countryside's code of conduct. For many students who reside in the heart of Coventry's concrete jungle, such opportunities are scarce. Moreover, this unique program fosters racial harmony as it brings together children from diverse backgrounds. Half of those attending are immigrants; thus this endeavor promotes unity among different nationalities. Accommodated in caravans and tents adorned with a marquee cookhouse and eating hall, twelve children at a time spend three memorable days at camp sharing cooking duties alongside four dedicated teachers supervising them throughout. The invigorating country air has unleashed voracious appetites amongst these youngsters who relish every mealtime moment. Their verdict? Eleven-year-old Manjit Singh exclaims his delight: "Smashing! This is my first countryside adventure ever! Away from noise and pollution—it took some getting used to sleeping under canvas but I think I might become a farmer when I grow up". Charanjit Singh adds enthusiastically: "We've had an incredible time here; we'll be so sad to leave. I believe we've learned more in this
