There were floods of tears outside the school gates this morning as year 5 set off to the Surrey countryside for a geography field trip residential. We do hope that all parents are feeling a bit better now! After a first class journey we arrived at the location in time for packed lunch in the joyous sunshine. Next we went to our rooms, made our beds from scratch and prepared ourselves for the afternoon’s activities. First of all it was orienteering. After learning how to read a compass to find our bearings, we set off into the sunshine and up the hill towards the mysterious tower. Up and down hills we went, through deep woodland following clues and our compass directions. Upon reaching the peak, we settled down to sketch the beautiful landscape around us. A poignant moment indeed! The final part of the journey took us back down the hill where we discovered a treasure trove full of cake. Apparently we have spaghetti bolognese for dinner followed by apple and blackberry crumble. I will let you know tomorrow.
