On Wednesday 11th June and Thursday 12th June 2014, Years 3 and 4 took part in two separate Camping days. They took part in a number of activities, including; pitching tents, toasting marshmallows, drinking hot chocolate, listening to stories around the ‘campfire’, a scavenger hunt and rounders.
The children will be using the information that they have learnt to inspire them in their Literacy work over the next few weeks. Year 3 and Year 4 will be writing persuasive texts about British camping holidays. The camping days were also used to encourage children to try and earn their hobbies and interests badge. There is one more opportunity for them to do this during this school year.
Fortunately, the weather was very kind to us and both children and staff had a very enjoyable couple of days.
