Year 2 & 3 Gorsefield Trip: Sunday

On Sunday morning the children woke up and packed their bags ready to go home. Once they’d taken their bags downstairs they had their breakfast, of croissants, toast and cereal, before they went Pond Dipping and on a Blind Folded Obstacle course.  They children worked well, guiding each other through the blind folded course. 

After the activities they had lunch, said thank you and goodbye the Gorsefield staff and boarded the coach to make their way back to school where they were met by their adults and taken home for a good nights sleep.

All the children behaved impeccably and the staff are very proud of them all.

Year 2 & 3 Gorsefield Trip: Saturday

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.

Year 2 & 3 Gorsefield Trip: Friday

The children (& staff) arrived at 12pm on Friday and were all very excited.  They were led to the conservatory where they ate their lunches and chatted about all the wonderful things they were going to do over the weekend.

After lunch the children were shown to their rooms, where they unpacked before they headed outside for a bit of play with the Year 6 children who hadn’t left yet.

When the bell had rung they assembled on the field and Gavin took them on a tour of the grounds before he led them on a nature walk. this was followed by a lovely dinner of cottage pie and ice cream and a bit of a disco. Then it was shower and story time before they tucked themselves into bed.

A lovely day was had by all.
