On Thursday Year 6 joined other schools in the network to take part in a day of activities and orienteering. The weather was fantastic and the children were able to spend a large part of the day playing and having fun. Callum’s group found all but one of the orienteering markers, and were therefore the winners amongst Ernesford Grange. Although,
Saturday brought glorious weather as each group headed out for an action packed day. Group E had the opportunity to swim, solve challenges as a team, conquer a zip line and try to avoid falling into the slimey pond !
After a long journey thanks to Friday night traffic, we arrived safely and began to settle in to Dol Y Moch. The children were keen to explore and soon settled into their new routines.
The children began the day with an assembly which gave them the opportunity to look at all the fantastic costumes. As always the children really rose to the occasion and had fun taking part!
Year 6 continued their environmental art project by raising awareness of the problem of plastic in our oceans. Today the pupils began to make fish out of plastic bottles as one component of their art piece.
