This afternoon after unpacking and eating some lunch we headed out to explore the site. There's only one thing to do when you arrive in the countryside one a cold and icy day and that's learn how to make a fire! So this afternoon we gathered wood and built our own fires. Lovely and warm!
When it's a cold and frosty morning on site there is nothing better than warming the hearts with a feisty bit of Viking behaviour. After an examination of some viking shields, the children poured their creativity into their own defences. Take a look at their creations.
Tuesday ended with a night walk and a few scary stories. It was amazing to be out at night with clear skies. The stars looked incredible.
Today we are walking into history and taking a 7 kilometre adventure around the local area. We're taking in castles, farms, bat caves and the local church. Life is very different in this part of the world to our little corner of Brent.
Today we headed to the river to study the life that lives in the river, measure the depth and take part in some very official boat racing!
