Year 5 have had a great first day of their residential. They impressed us all with how quickly they managed the first walk of the day, and then had a great time pond dipping, bug hunting and finding out about our local wildlife. After a rather soggy walk back to base, they demolished their dinner and then headed out for a night walk. We listened to the sounds of the dusk, saw lots of bats and spotted stars. And all in the dry too! Then back to base again for hot chocolate, biscuits and off to bed. The children have been really well behaved, and are being a credit to the school. They should sleep well after all that exercise!
We will update you again tomorrow.
