On Saturday morning the children woke up nice and early and made their way downstairs to have very scrumptious breakfast of cereal, toast, eggs and beans. This was followed by some free time where the children enjoyed playing in the grounds. After this they all sat down to write a letter to their adults at home. Then they were taken outside to paint and draw pictures of their surroundings.
After lunch the children were split in to two groups and taken to the gardens to plant seeds to grow strawberries, cucumbers, lettuces and potatoes. They all had a go at digging and planting and got very dirty hands. Whilst one group did this activity the others were den building. They had bamboo sticks, elastic bands, tarpaulin and meshed materials to build a sturdy windproof structure. They all worked very well as a team and helped each other to produce some very strong dens.
