Field trip to ‘El Santo’ in Pizarra

As a part of our geography curriculum, our Y6 students are currently studying mountains. Therefore, we chose to incorporate a field trip to a local mountain. In order to take our studies outdoors and enrich the learning that’s been taking place in our classes.

Pizarra is located in the province of Málaga, in the heart of the Guadalhorce Valley. Close to the Sierra de Gibralmora, among rich citrus orchards.

The path of ‘El Santo’ is a walk in the middle of nature, which starts in the same village of Pizarra and passes through a pine forest. It has narrow passageways between rocks, a mountain range with the typical vegetation of the south of Spain. As well as wonderful views especially from the viewpoint, where you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Guadalhorce Valley and Sierra de las Nieves.

The children had a great time and had the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice in a familiar and safe environment, while enjoying the natural space that surrounds us.
