This page will be updated with images from the adventures that take place during the Year 5&6 residential week.
The children have settled in very nicely and spent much of Monday completing orientation exercises. They also met some of the animals. Thankfully the strong winds never really came and we were able to sit back and stare in wonder at the yellow skies. Life is sweet. Take a look at the pictures below.
Teamwork makes the dream work!
Somebody said there may be a hurricane on the way. It turned out to be a light breeze. However we worked as a team to make some pretty cool guttering systems for the capture of water. Alternatively they make amazing ball runs!
Each morning one of the groups gets the chance to feed the animals, change their bedding and make sure they are all happy. Here is the gallery of those activities.
Animal Feeding Duties
We’ve spent the day exploring the Vikings!
Time for a little team sport!
What do you do on a rainy day? You get wetter! This morning we stayed inside to make paper boats. This afternoon we sailed them down the river while we also took some time to study river life. You'll never guess what we found!
We've been active since yesterday afternoon. You think we climb the walls at home, but at Gordon Brown we really do! We also jump off them! Today is all about exercise and teamwork. Take a look at the pictures.
We've been learning all about survival at Gordon Brown. Judging by the weather forecast for the weekend, not a moment too soon!
