Year 3's trip to Bishops Wood Centre

Making shelters.

18 May 2016

On Thursday 18th May, Year 3 had an action packed class trip at the Bishops Wood Centre in Worcestershire.

Fortunately, the weather was lovely which enabled us to take full advantage of all of the outdoor activities on offer.

The trip took the children back to pre-historic times, with the first activity seeing them work as small groups to build their own shelter from the limited materials on offer…to varying degrees of success!

Other activities completed during the day included lighting our own fires and hunting for suitable food in the forest.

Well done to the children who behaved excellently during the day.

Fun at the castle.

On Friday 4th March, Year 3 visited Tamworth Castle as part of our English focus on ‘Castles’.

We were given a full guided tour of the castle and got to see the arrow slits on the steep castle walls as well as visiting the armoury, dungeons and the great hall.

Children were given the opportunity to handle some of the swords and shields, try on the outfits and wigs and even get locked inside the jail!

We had a fantastic time at Tamworth Castle and the children were excellently behaved throughout, asking plenty of interesting questions.
