Event - A Day at Beaumanor Hall

18 October 2007

On Thursday 18 October 2007 all of the school went to Beaumanor Hall for the day.

Reception looked for a teddy bear in the woods, Year 1 followed a nursery rhymes trail, Year 2 orienteered, Year 3 tried to survive in the woods by building shelters, Year 4 built bridges across a stream, Year 5 did archery and Year 6 tested their skills and nerves on the high ropes.

The Year 4 and 5 children stayed over night and canoed on the Friday 19.

Overall a wonder time was had by the children who learnt so much about the world around them, each other and above all, about themselves.

Year 3 practising their survival skills

Year 6 were preparing for an even greater adventure
 
It's a long way up

Keep balancing!
 
A good start on the zip wire...

...but not for long!
 
Year 4 learnt the theory of how to construct bridges

In small groups, they put their knowledge into reality
 
However, there seems to be a common theme of putting ones foot in it!

Years 4 and 5 stopped over night and went canoeing the next day
 
And a beautiful day it was
