Yippee! The day has finally arrived that Beech Class have arrived at Shortenills Environmental Centre! This morning many excited children began their stay on a residential experience away from home!
After making beds and unpacking, we had a pizza lunch with yummy wedges. Lots of us had a second helping! Then we all got ready to go orienteering. We had to work together to find markers on the trees; it was a challenge but we were all excited to finish the course.
Unfortunately, it was raining. Well actually, it was really raining! It really didn't matter to us though because we were with our friends having the best time ever!
In the evening we had some free time before tea where we were drawing and laughing in our dorms. For tea, we had sandwiches, salad and jacket potatoes. We will all have a turn at serving our drinks and we are enjoying sitting together to chat.
Have a look below at the photos that Mrs West took. As you can see, we love Shortenills!!!
