Marchants Hill

Each year the children in Year 3 and Year 4 have the opportunity to spend a weekend at Marchants Hill.  The children particpate in various outdoor challenges like abseiling, rock wall climbing, archery, challenge course, low ropes. Jacobs ladder, zip wire, mountain biking and fencing.  Not only do they have the opportunity to do new things outside of their normal environment, they also develop confidence, learn to make healthy lifestyle choices and social skills associated with living with other people. 

On Friday 18th May, we set off on a coach at 1.30. We were all very excited. When we got there, we met our group instructors, their names were Royden and Nathan. After that we were told what rooms we were sleeping in and which teacher was our group leader. On Friday night we collected wood for the fire, then after dinner we sang songs at the camp fire and one of the songs was called “I’ve been eaten by a boa constrictor” and the camp fire was a success. On Saturday, we got up early and after the breakfast we had our first activity. All together we had four activities. Throughout our time there, we had the giant swing, zip wire, trapeze, aero ball, orienteering, archery, climbing and ball games. Before and after lunch, we went to spend out £3 pocket money at the PGL shop. Most of us brought a packet of sweets for the disco later that night, At the disco, we all dressed up in our party clothes and danced to lots of music and the DJ played the theme tune to Frozen to annoy all of the boys! At the end, we had winners for the best disco outfits! On Sunday, we had our last activities and we were all sad that we were leaving. At Dinner, the coach arrived and we all said farewell. Many thanks for Miss Periam, Mrs Berryman, Miss Boyle, Miss Campbell and Miss Krawczyk for joining us on this trip! We hope that year 2 are excited to go to Marchants Hill next year!

France 2017

By Ellora (Year 5)

When 35 children from year five and six went to France, we all thought it was going to be a lovely time. We were right! We did so many lovely things like: going to biscuit and cheese factories, going to a zoo, making scrapbooks in our groups and lot of other lovely things.  Five lovely teachers came along teachers came along with us and they were Miss Ah-moye, Mr Greenhough, Mrs Walker, Miss Speight and Miss Turner.

Everyone of us spoke some French whether it was asking for a postcard and stamp on the ferry, or asking for something in the hotel. The children all loved hearing the messages parents sent us on the blog.  In the zoo, we watched a show about lemars and Miss Speight posted some pictures about that and that got all the parents’ attention.  To conclude, we all had a lovely time in France.
