Last day of the year!!
I have already heard some very funny stories about your trip away. It is wonderful that you all had such a good time. 🙂
Good luck on your transfer day. I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy exploring your new school and make lots of new friends.
On Tuesday we will be continuing with our ‘Lord of the Rings’ unit in Literacy. (I am sure that has made you all smile…particularly Declan)
Here are some video stories to remind you of the fantastic work you have completed so far.

Today we went orienteering and Jake, Lauren,Reece and William and I all got lost and we had to ask adults passing how we get back to the park. At about 1 we had lunch which was ham sandwich and cheese and onion crisps and a kit kat it was lovely. Then we went caving me and Megan were working together and supporting each other it was more Megan supporting me because I was petrified that I wouldn’t fit through any of the gaps in the cave. For our tea we had soup for starters and then for the main course which was roast dinner it was all home-made it was lovely.
Today, my group went through an abandoned train tunnel and then went waterfall walking. The day started going up a mountain covered in army trucks/ men. We then went into the tunnel but we were told by Nick “no torches” so we had to get sticks and as we travelled we made sure that our sticks were touching the wall. Finally after around an hour we emerged from the tunnel and were told to go back through but this time with nobody to hold on to (on our OWN). Although we went through on our own, the walk was half as long because most of us walked very quickly or in some cases ran. When we came out we had lunch and set off for the waterfall walking…
It started by getting our life jackets and waterproof tops and bottoms on then going down to the fast flowing river we were told “no splashing unless you are an adult,” so we got partly worried. We crossed the river after being splashed quite a few times then we made our way to the ‘slide’ as we call it because we slide down a few rapids. After that we made our way to a waterfall the size of a 3 story house with a baby giraffe on the top of it. We were told that we were going to slide down it but later we were told we would be dead 43 times before we reached the bottom. All we ended up doing was sliding down the rocks underneath but it was still quite fun. We got on the bus in our soaking wet clothes and had a nice warm shower when we got back!
Today, my group went canoeing. We canoed on the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. We canoed 2 miles to the resting point.There we made a shelter to eat our lunch under.After we had our lunch.Then we did fire lighting. We used flint and steel to light a piece of fabric.Eventually we made popcorn and toasted marshmellows on the fire. Then we took down the shelter and went back to the minibus. Hope you like the photos.
Today, my group went orienteering and caving. We went to a forest for orienteering. Using a map, we found diffrent locations that were marked with posts. Caving was really exciting and fun, as there was a fast flowing river pushing under our feet. Leading through the dark, everyone held on to each other because we didn’t want to get lost. In the cave, slanting rocks became slides and waterfalls became showers! It was so much fun! In the heart of the cave, loud screams were heard as we felt things through the water. Splash! Most people fell in!

(P.S. – Miss Baker – do you like our use of adjectives, prepositional phrases, short sentences for effect and complex sentences? – level 4 or level 5?)
There will be some photos from Georgia and Georgina’s group on the blog tomorrow.
