Whilst many of our Year 3 friends were at the Frontier Centre, we were also having fun back at Simon de Senlis. On Thursday we composed a musical score for a Tutankhamun story that will be shared in our next music session. After break we spent time planning and costing a picnic to eat on our trip the following day. A visit to Tescos followed lunch when we, and a large bear called Justin, purchased all the ingredients needed for our feast.
Friday arrived, a little less sunny than the previous day but dry nevertheless, and after preparing our picnic we set off in the school minibus to Salcey. Tree climbing, puddle jumping, forest exploring, den building, team work and a bit of singing was followed by an amazing picnic lunch! Everyone then played together on the adventure playground before conquering our fears to ascend the treetop walk and being rewarded by an ice-cream before returning to school, tired and muddy but very happy.
It was an utter pleasure spending two days with this merry band of explorers. All of the adults were particularly impressed by the teamwork and inclusion of a group of children who do not usually play together. New friendships and great memories have been created.
