Our trip to Sayer’s Croft  was fantastic and we all had a lot of fun! After arriving and making our beds, we had lunch, and our first activities were orienteering and shelter building. The children built efficient shelters which were tested with the arrival of the rain (watering cans) and the interference of bears (teachers in disguise). After not much sleep, we were all ready for an action packed Tuesday. We completed the blind fold trail, explored the maze and built and tested rafts, getting very wet in the process! We also went caving (the children had to crawl in various tunnels, looking like real explorers and discovering hidden passages). We also completed the excellent Challenge Course which was all about team work; the children had to work together to solve the different problems they encountered. On the last day, we had time to visit a Round house in which we discovered Celtic and Roman artefacts and finally, the children had the chance to use compasses to find their way around the woods and surrounding area.  All the activities were fun, including a night walk and a campfire with a lot of singing and a talent show. All too soon, it was time to go but we left with many happy memories.

The children were very well behaved and a credit to the school. Well done everyone!!!
