Group 2 have been into the woods to build a dragon this morning. We used sticks, leaves and natural materials. We built this to match Roald Dahl's story of The Minpins. Once we had built the dragon, we created a fire using a flint and cotton wool. In the afternoon we built Minpin windows and doors and created a Minpin tree in the woods. We also did a bird quiz and had to build a flying machine for the swan. Whilst we were out we found ourselves caught in a horrible, heavy blizzard! It was chilly! Finally we flew like elegant swans on the zip wire! Our day was both adventurously strange and weird! We warmed up our bellies by drinking hot chocolate! We can't wait for tea tonight!
Thanks to Robyn for the story!

The children arrived safe and sound at a little after 10am. They have unpacked their cases, made their beds and were treated to a delicious slice of pizza and beans before heading out to an afternoon of team building activities.
After fish fingers, chips and peas for dinner, the children then headed back out for a torch walk through the beautiful, snowy and moonlit woods. This was a fantastic experience that the children will remember for a very long time.
The children are now fast asleep in bed after a busy day. The weather has been chilly, but not unbearable.
We are hoping to upload photos from today as soon as possible. However, the wifi is extremely slow this evening so please bare with us.
The Year 4 team.
Tuesday 27th February.
We have split into 3 groups today. Group 3 with Miss Rockett has taken care of animals- feeding the chickens , rabbits and 2 very boisterous pigmy goats. We then were excellent at orienteering using the 8 points of the compass as well as setting the compass and finding locations.
After lunch we then went out to see if we could enhance our senses. We got blindfolded and had to complete an obstacle course course. We started off in the sunshine and when we were finished and removed our blind folds it was like Narnia!
We then had tea and completed a night time treasure hunt in the snow it was magical.
We have all now had our hot chocolate and are in our beds ready for lights out at 9:00.
