Our Year 6 children are on a woodland adventure this week, with The Bushcraft Company at Boughton Woods.
They'll be sleeping under canvas and experiencing some wonderful bushcraft activities.
We look forward to receiving their updates which we'll add below. Most recent updates will be at the top. Scroll down for earlier updates.

Lots of children out in the shelters last night, despite the torrential rain which started just before 10pm! This morning is all about packing up, first aid, and an exciting 'emergency situation' to encounter.

They've made it through the night! No rain - but a very early start. A few children started the night in their self-made shelters, and a couple of girls stuck it out right into the early hours. We are sure that there will be some tired children today. It's cooler today, and the rain may arrive later!

A great first day! The children have built shelters (which they are determined to sleep in!), built and lit fires (and cooked burgers on them), and learned songs and riddles. They are now getting their tents all sorted for the evening. Not many pictures because phone signal is patchy - but everyone is as happy as the boys here...!
