Gorsefield Residential 2022/23
The children worked in three groups today to complete different activities. In each group they worked together to solve problems and cross obstacle courses, including walking through a forest trail blindfolded. They also went mini-beast hunting, working as entomologists to discover all kinds of insects as well as amphibians. Finally, the children sketched and painted all the things that have inspired them during their stay in the countryside.
Children have behaved brilliantly. After settling into their rooms, they had pasta, salad and garlic bread for lunch. They then set off on a 2.5 mile countryside walk, learning about trees and local wildlife with Joe. The children got to play in the grounds.
They had a brilliant time playing in the grounds - some enjoyed the swing and treehouse and others enjoyed cricket or basketball. The children were AMAZING at basketball, there will be a rematch tomorrow! After playing everyone had a shower and got into PJs for reading and board games with hot chocolate.
