Day 2 didn’t bring the glorious sunshine it promised, however we brought our fighting Sheffield spirit to the south coast! Wet, wild and windy would be an understatement for the weather today, but we all enjoyed our morning’s activities. These included: problem solving, mountain biking and tunnel trail, which we will rotate through in our groups over the next few days. Tomorrow also brings ‘Survivor’, where we will be making campfires and shelters. After our morning activities, we then eagerly boarded the coach to Dorchester and made our way round the Tutankhamen exhibition, where we learned about the Boy King and saw his replica tomb. The gift shop was also a highlight, and we look forward to showing you our souvenirs! After warming up back at base, we enjoyed our hot dinner, more opportunity to spend our money in the gift shop and finally an evening activity of Wacky Races. Tomorrow we have more activities and a trip to the Sea Life Centre. The forecast looks dry, so fingers crossed!
Love from Weymouth.
Well we made it to the Jurassic Coast! To the merry sound of chanting and an excited countdown, we entered the gates to PGL. The damp weather didn’t dampen our spirits! Firstly, the children all settled into their rooms and met our enthusiastic group leaders, Mitch and Willow. We had a tour of the site and played some games in our groups, all overlooking the beautiful Osmington Bay. Dinner was delicious: steak pie, chicken nuggets or quorn and sweet potato risotto, with tasty peach cobbler for dessert. We also filled up on fresh fruit and the salad bar. After dinner, we organised and tidied our rooms, before heading to an indoor campfire. Tomorrow we will be rising early for room inspections and starting our activities.
Love from Year 5
I really enjoyed making the flapjack with you and designing the packaging, they are looking great and I would definitely be persuaded to pick up your brands at the supermarket! I was blown away by the effort you put into your Egyptian masks, in school and at home over half term, they are amazing and I can not believe how talented you all are at dancing. The creative dances you developed in pairs to show the life of a dandelion were beautiful. I am very happy that I got to start the new topic with you all and every day I have been excited about reading the next chapter of Journey to the River Sea, I'm going to have get myself a copy of the book so I can finish it when I'm not here.
Thank you for all your hard work and for being so helpful to me and helping me find my way around a new school.
Keep up the hard work, I'm sure Miss Bradley can't wait to see you and find out all about your new topic, The Rainforest.
Miss Kerr :)
This term in 5BR we have looked at the Ancient Egyptians.
We have made masks using paper mache, developed a dance and looked at the new building.
We investigated the changes in the use of land and the differences between physical and human geography.
