All had a good sleep. We woke to lovely sunshine and a good breakfast. Ella joined us today. We are staying on site today for many different challenging activities, including climbing, low ropes, The Wall and den building.
The weather forecast was not good but the intrepid set off on another adventure. (The drying room is busy)
Due to the weather we did not go orienteering this evening, instead we did team building activities. The children worked well together and solved problems with good discussion and leadership.
We arrived safely at Longtown. We had a tour and a fire safety check. We made our beds and then set off for our mountain walk. The walk was an adventure!
The children created 1 minute documentaries about life in UK rockpools.
We celebrated World Book Day in traditional style.
Children from Farthinghoe Primary School went to Chenderit to run at a cross country event. It was really cold and dull, but all of us were resilient. Every one of us carried on and completed the race, even though some of us had falls.
The children that participated were: Immy, Jessica, Daisy, Rosie, River, Tommy, Timothy, Ben and Niall. These children proved that they can complete something when the weather was not what they expected. Most of us came in the top 10. Daisy ended in 3rd place. Rosie was 7th and Immy 10th.
The final race took place in the dark!
This term EYFS and Key Stage have been learning about castles and dragons as their topic, on Thursday, 18th October the children were invited to come into school dressed as prince's, princesses, dragons and knights to celebrate the end of their topic.
Every child in KS2 took part in a Tag rugby tournament. Teams of 4 took to the field and put on a display of fantastic sportsmanship and competition. With team names like "The Winning Warriors, The Banana Bunch and Princess Power" the children had great fun.
Thanks to Ben White from Magdelen and Jack Holloway from Warriner for refereeing the matches. The winning team were The Banana Bunch and everyone has a new passion for Tag Rugby.
