Year 2 become outlaws for the day!

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.

 

 

2W visit the Senior school library

On Tuesday, Year 2 went to visit the Senior school library to enjoy a talk by head librarian and archivist Ms Gunther about the history of our school. All of the children were completely engaged, finding out lots of information and they got to see documents which were over 200 years old, photographs of the school and its pupils from the turn of the last century and clothes worn by pupils from 70 years ago. It was a real privilege and we would like to pass on our thanks to Ms Gunther.
