Hooray! It's Shortenills time for Chestnut Class! We arrived this morning and we were so excited as we went into our dorms to make our beds!
We had a lesson in the classroom and had a chance to see all the animals around the room. Then we had a snack before heading off into the meadow...The weather was quite fine and warm and we found lots of grasshoppers in the long grass.
We changed out of our wellies into trainers and then played with all our friends on the adventure playground... Everyone was so hungry for lunch after climbing, swinging and balancing!
We had a sandwich lunch followed by jam sponge cake. Guess what? Someone lost a tooth...we really hope that there are a few fairies at Shortenills! Then we all went orienteering. We used our maps to find clues and we dodged the rain drops as we ran!
We then had a little time in the dorm to write letters home... Miss Pitman has been to see us and she has brought them all back to school. They can be collected from the school office tomorrow (Thursday) morning...
In the evening we enjoyed a lovely dinner and looked forward to our evening activities.
We are so happy to be at Shortenills with our friends and we hope for a little sunshine in the morning....! Take a look at our photos...
