Burwardsley Day 2


Well after yesterday we thought we couldn't fit anymore into 1 day but we think we just about managed it today!

All children slept brilliantly through the night, they were  absolutely fantastic.

There were clearly some early risers in the boys dorm with the first "sounds of wake" coming through the wall at around 5:30! In complete contrast, the girls had to be woken up at 7:30 to be ready in time for breakfast!

The excitement soon began when we realised, not only were there a selection of cereals, toast, jams and fruits, but our lovely chef was rustling up a cooked breakfast for us as well! "Hotel Burwardsley is amazing" one table shouted.

We spent the day in 3 groups spending approximately an hour and half on each activity.

Children became Archeologists, heading back in time to the Iron Age. They studied weapons and tools from that era, learned inside a celtic roundhouse and excavated an ancient celtic roundhouse from 2000 years ago.

As well as this, the children have all worked with clay to create firstly a coil pot and then use the techniques learnt to design and create there own piece using their new skills. As you can see from the pictures below we are a class of talented sculpture artists.

Childern also learnt a huge amount from the surroundings of Burwardsley under the expert guidence of Mr Astbury and Mrs Siddorns. All children were led on a walk of natural wonder through the woodland and a huge thanks must go to our star guides who walked the hill (mountain as the children described) 3 times!

"They'll sleep well tonight"..................the children said as Mr Astbury and Mrs Siddorns departed!

After another fabulous meal of chicken roast dinner or pasta bolognese followed by homemade chocolate cake and ice cream or doughnuts, we headed out for some more fresh air and some team games.

We came back inside for a wash and a change and headed to disco room! Party games, crazy dance moves, sweets and giggles made sure everyone was having a ball!

We are just settling down now into our pj's ready for a story and hopefully another cracking nights sleep. With all they have done today.......its amazing they are still awake now. I know we're all exhauszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Love Year 3!
