Class 6 - Fir

We are on the coach and have had a great week, despite the bruises and midge bites.
Everyone went caving yesterday and we're very proud of the teamwork they showed in the cave and on the high ropes. Today we are hiking and rock climbing on Dartmoor, fingers crossed that the weather is ok and the ice cream van is there.
We all slept very well after a  busy day.  The evening was a little wet but we still had a camp fire and built dens in the woods.They are looking forward to caving and high-ropes today.

Getting wet!

Everyone slept well and we've all had a full English breakfast, hash browns are the favourite item.  Activities will start soon, today we will be doing the zip wire, crate stacking and kayaking.  This will be part of their National Outdoor Learning Award that they are all working towards.
We've arrived - 12:00 on the dot. All ok, the journey was good. Pizza for lunch and the lots of activities to look forward to.

We are really looking forward to our trip to River Dart next week.  Please arrive at school on Monday at 7:00am, the coach will be leaving promptly at 7:15.  Happy packing!

Welcome back to all the children now in year 6, we are looking forward to an exciting year.

 

We are now not only know as year 6 but are also known as Fir Class, as all of the classes have now been named after trees.

 

This afternoon the children, worked in groups, using limited materials, to protect an egg that would later be dropped from a height.  It was very egg-citing and their teamwork was egg-cellent!

 

More than half of the eggs survived.
