This year, Year Six had yet another successful trip to Tolmers.


We turned up, unpacked and went out for our first walk in the woods. The ground was muddy, but not too bad. We spent our time playing and gathering words and phrases for tomorrow's poetry writing. After lunch, there was some free time to play in the grounds - mainly spent building dens.
In the afternoon, we had a go at the coconut tree climb and archery. There were some bullseyes hit, and children had fun with the archery pizza game.
The night time hike gave us a chance to use our torches in the dark. The night sky gave us a clear view of the constellations. There is way less light pollution in Cuffley than in Hemel.
And then it was bed. (All things considered, it was a fairly quiet night.)

The first session was spent writing poetry based on Tolmers during the day and at night. The second session saw us head into the woods to make up and perform some short stories. We had bizarre tales about aliens and monsters. 
The afternoon saw the children have a go at canoeing and a brand new climbing thing. Dinner was a pasta/hotdog combo, which went down very well, followed by homemade banoffee pie. And here are three words which don't usually go together: squirty cream moustaches!
The evening activity was a night-time torch-lit quiz challenge. In small groups, the children had to hunt around the grounds in search of paper clues (and myself, Mrs North and Mrs Woolley).

 

Please take a look at the photos below to see what we got up to.
