Year 2 had a fantastic day at Beaumanor Hall yesterday, the weather was perfect and so was the behaviour of the children. They all took part in a Robin Hood Survival day and plenty of adventure was had by all. We made amazing Robin Hood hats using natural materials from the woods that Phillip Treacy would have been proud of. Then the class went on a woodland walk hiding from the Sheriff of Nottingham and collecting up the wanted posters before anyone got caught!
After lunch, we went back to the woods and the children were given the task of creating weatherproof dens using ropes, tarpaulin sheets and anything else they could find. These were tested with a watering can to mixed results but judging by the laughter and chatter everyone absolutely loved it, even if they did get wet. All of the hard work was rewarded with a cup of ‘Squirrel stew’ (hot chocolate) round a campfire. A perfect end to a perfect day.
