YOUNG pupils took time out from their classroom to develop their enterprise skills.

Students from Blyth’s Morpeth Road Primary School took part in a series of team building and problem solving initiatives, visiting Plessey Woods to take part in a variety of activities.

The children were divided into two groups – Team Newcastle and Team Dynamite – competing against each other to complete challenging tasks that earned them reward points, depending on how well they worked.

Points were awarded for completing the task, as well as showing the values of respect, friendship and teamwork.

Activities including building an Eiffel Tower, crossing a crocodile infested swamp, and rounding up their blindfolded team mates into a pen without speaking to each other.

Equipment for the activities was provided by Koru Property Services.

At the end of the day, Team Dynamite were named wining team, with each member winning a prize for their efforts.
