Thursday 14th February, 2019 – Year Six at Liddingon – Day Four

Filed under: School Trips & Visits,Year 6 @ 9:13 pm

It’s the last evening!

As I type this, the children are watching a film in a dark room.  Some of them may be asleep. Some of them are being pulled out of their room to do a better job of packing their suitcases. But it’s quiet, at least!

We’ve had another day full of activities; today, we even managed some sunshine and warmth as an accompaniment.  In addition to these, we squeezed in some time to clear our rooms, and for Mrs Arnold to deliver a surprising (alarming?) number of Valentine gifts.

Tomorrow, we have a slightly later breakfast which should allow us to finish clearing the rooms before the coach arrives.  We should be arriving back in Bishop’s Waltham somewhere between 11 o’clock and half past.  We’ll post news about this to the facebook page as the journey progresses, so keep your eyes peeled.

See you all tomorrow!

Wednesday 13th February 2019 – Year 6 at Liddington – Day 3

Filed under: School Trips & Visits,Year 6 @ 9:52 pm

Another cold, but successful day at Liddington today.  As usual, we had a good range of activities being done: zip wire, trapeze, survivor, giant swing, orienteering, vertical challenge, abseiling and fencing.  This evening, the children are taking part in a ‘Robot Wars’ challenge, constructing costumes and competing in a range of ridiculous tasks which they are thoroughly enjoying.  We have some very tired children now, so we’re predicting another good night’s sleep!

Plenty of photos for you to enjoy tonight.

Wednesday 13th February 2019 – Year 5 sharing work

Filed under: English,Year 5 @ 8:12 pm

Year 5 have been sharing their story writing with each other this week and it has been lovely to see how well they have responded to each other’s work. The children were able to pick out their favourite parts of each story and explain why this was their favourite part. Some fantastic story writing, Year 5! Well done.

Wednesday 13th February 2019 – Year 4 – Anglo Saxon guided reading

Filed under: English,Year 4 @ 3:06 pm

Today, Year 4’s guided reading was based on the fascinating Anglo Saxon finds at Sutton Hoo. As groups the children read and annotated newspaper style reports and then answered questions. The children enjoyed sharing their different skills to find answers.

Tuesday 12th February 2019 – Year Six at Liddington – Day Two

Filed under: School Trips & Visits,Year 6 @ 9:51 pm

Day Two!

Our first night was a great success.  There was a few knocks on doors early on, but by midnight, everyone was asleep for an undisturbed night – until at least 5 am.  So, some room for development!

We had our first breakfast, then headed out for our first full day of activities.  Again, the five groups experienced a range of different things: the zip wire, survivor, crate challenge, Jacob’s ladder, aeroball, fencing and vertical challenge all took place at some point today.

After another hearty dinner, the day is now finishing with ‘Splash!’ – an evening of fun and games in the sports hall, carefully designed to drain children of any remaining energy they might have before bed.  Several children have asked today whether the evening activity could be shortened so they could have an early night, so we’re looking forward to some imminent peace and quiet.

As ever, we’ll be posting updates to facebook and twitter throughout tomorrow. and there’ll be a proper update during the evening.

Monday 11th February 2019 – Year Six at Liddington – Day One

Filed under: School Trips & Visits,Year 6 @ 9:28 pm

Good evening!

For some reason, the school blog doesn’t want to co-operate with us tonight. Fortunately, we’ve bought along our social-media consent list, so we’re able to post tonight’s update here.

We’ve had a great start to our time away. We arrived in good time, about 11:00, and had a quick tour of the site followed by our first meal. Then, it was outside for our first two activities. On offer this afternoon were a number of things for our different groups to enjoy: vertical challenge, survivor, abseiling and archery. Each group will do all of these activities (and, of course, many more) over the next few days.

After a brief visit to our rooms – and our dinner – we then headed out to the astroturf for an evening of Wacky Races. We’re heading to bed soon – I wonder how late it will be before we’re all asleep…
