Our Camping Trip 10th/11th September 2015

Explorers are us !
Class: 6.2 Teacher: Miss Moore
In our first week of settling into year 6 we were lucky enough to have the chance to camp at school over night ! 

Thursday morning we arrived with our bags full of pillows and snacks, well rested from our final night in our own beds (Miss Moore included!). 

Even the children who had not planned to sleep over were full of excitement ready to become explorers for the day. It was a chance for the whole of year 6 to bond and work as a team as we were split into our house teams. 

After a few name learning and ice breaking games the first task (and perhaps the most important task) was to set up home ! 

We all worked together and the teachers were impressed at how fast the homes for the night were built. The school field covered in little green domes ! 

Pitching a tent is not all we learnt ! One highlight for 6.2 was the fire lighting activity. All children got a chance to light the fire and now have a skill for life. 

Along with fire lighting, shelter building and marshmallow toasting the most enjoyable part of the day for Miss Moore was having the chance to get to know 6.2 in the first week of school in a relaxed and fun environment. (One of us made her cry with laughter !) 

Overall we all had two days of fun, food and very little sleep. But it is an experience we will remember for the whole year and more than likely our whole lives ! 
Thank you to all the teachers and explorers who made this experience possible !
