At last the day has arrived for Beech Class to visit Shortenills Environment Study Centre for our annual Residential Trip! There was great excitement this morning...but we were very patient as we waited to get into the dorm!
The weather is sooo rainy but we don't mind at all! We are with all our friends and we have had great fun on our first day.
We had a sandwich lunch followed by chocolate crispy cakes. Then we all went orienteering. We were rather good at reading our maps! After that, we spent a little time in the classroom where we completed an investigation.
We then had a little time in the dorm to write letters home... Mrs West has been to see us and she has brought them all back to school. They can be collected from the school office on Thursday morning...
In the evening we enjoyed a lovely dinner of jacket potatoes or lasagne and jam sponge. We were all hungry!
After dinner we went to the Yurt to have an indoor camp fire - well a fired stove! The rain did not stop us at all! We sang songs and rhymes; told riddles and laughed!
We are so happy to be at Shortenills with our friends....! Take a look at our photos...
