Edgmond Hall Day 4-The final lap

Good evening everyone!

Another bright and early start (maybe too early for us teachers!!) to the morning. We woke up ready for our final full day, starting off with a yummy breakfast of cereal, toast and scrambled eggs, which set us up for our final rotation of activities.

Miss McFarlane and Miss Badger’s group had orienteering. At the start of the session, the children were excited to develop their skills to read a map and to understand a compass. Towards the end of the session, both teachers were amazed at how the children worked together as a team and they were able to find each point using their orienteering skills. 

Miss Paparozzi’s group took off on the mini bus to walk to the top of Wenlock Edge. We had lots of fun jumping in the muddy puddles and finding fossils. We learnt all about the different hill ranges around the area and origins of different places around the development of the woodland area. 

                     

Mr McGarvey’s group had bush craft within the woods. They started the session very excited to learn their survival skills. The children’s order of survival items differed once more- water overtook chocolate with this group! They finished off the morning with building their dens. Unfortunately, Mr McGarvey’s group got very, very wet!

To finish our week, we asked the children their opinions of the residential and although this is just a snippet, each and every child has absolutely loved it!! They have risen to different challenges, worked together amazingly and they have had lots of new and exciting experiences.
