Maple at Burwardsley
This week has been an extremely exciting week for Maple Class!
In English we have started looking at The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Orange and Yellow crayons had an argument and we have written letters to peruade them to come back. We tried out our reasons on Emily-Mai and Kyla and eventually persuaded them both to come back!
In Forest school on Tuesday we made pancakes over a fire! This was a very exciting way to eat pancakes!
The most exciting part of our week was definitely the residential trip to Burwardsley! We left school in high spirits on Thursday morning.
When we arrived we went outside to play team games in the playground.
After sandwiches from school we went for a walk up Willow Hill. We had to crouch under a huge rock to get along the path – it was very exciting!
At the top we built dens from stick and leaves.
We then went back down and were back just in time for tea.
Before bed we had some marshmallows and stories.
On Friday morning we went out to play on the field before breakfast. Then after a hot and a cold breakfast we did some orienteering around the site to spell different words. We also went into the Iron Age round house to learn about the compass points and a little bit about how the Iron Age people lived.
Then we made a jungle camp. We had to learn a few knots first and we tested them in some relay races.
To complete the jungle camp, we had to put tarps and hammocks up between the trees and make sure we were all inside before the rain came!
Everyone had a brilliant time and they have all asked if we can go again soon!
Have a good weekend with lots of sleep!
