Day 2- Another busy day in the woods....some of us were up earlier than others, but we were.all ready for another fun, but soggy, day!
We began the day with 'the best pancakes we have ever eaten!' - served with a range of different toppings. After this we played games in the woods, our favourite being predator.
Before heading out on our walk we had to assist in the preparation of our lunch...panassed salmon. It was filleted before being seasoned and skewered to be cooked over our open fire. There was of course the obligatory fish eye eating contest with those taking part aquitting themselves admirably.
We then headed into the woods for a lesson in tracking before returning to eat the salmon with noodles and vegetables.
Following this we learnt some wilderness first aid skills, practicing them on each other in case of emergencies!
This afternoon we were looking forward to making survival bracelets, making and eating our own pizzas and cooking smores on the camp fire.
Everyone was in high spirits and will undoubtedly sleep well tonight.
Day 1- We have all endured a very soggy, yet enjoyable day! We started out by making our way to camp to get to know our new surroundings.
Having done this we found out our tribe and tent groups, which we were all very happy with! We then set about learning how to make fires in the woods, to enable us to cook our own lunch....burgers!
Throughout the afternoon we spent time with our tribes, making flags and coming up with chants to represent us.
After a long day we were all looking forward to our spaghetti Bolognese dinner!
STEM Day - Wednesday 19th December
UKS2 enjoyed a fantastic day of Science Technology Engineering and Maths learning today, which centred around an exciting science investigation and the opportunity to design and create a coded microbit. For this activity, they were tasked with creating a coded interactive Christmas decoration and all worked incredibly hard! Miss Kropman was especially impressed with the digital leaders (trained to be experts by Miss Buttle) who supported both their classmates and also the children in LKS2 throughout the day - well done Emily P, Francesca, Charlie, Hugo, Sami, Katie, Tilly, Alex, Christopher, Ben, Harry, Juliet, Maya S and Maya W!
