Residential - Herd Farm

We are having an amazing time, what a wonderful place! The activities are awesome - Omar was 'dancing with fear' on top of the Crate Stack today and even Mrs Tarrant went on the Giant Swing! The food is delicious - we had homemade soup and baguettes for lunch. We get dessert every day! Last night, we were orienteering in the dark with our torches. It was scary but so much fun. We have an evening walked planned tonight that passes the set of Emmerdale!

Please check your WhatsApp messages for a link with lots of photos so far.

Fossil printing

Year 6 have been making their own stencils (with card and string) to print patterns and rotations. We decided on a fossil shape - to link in with our Science work. Our evaluations show which fossils printed well and reasons why others didn't. We had a lot of fun! Why don't you have a go?
