Burwardsley Bonanza: Year 2 Residential

Burwardsley Bonanza: Year 2 Residential

Our very eager Year 2 pupils recently set off on a mini break (residential) to Burwardsley. The children were very excited (as were the staff!).

Before arriving at the Education Centre, they called in at Cheshire Ice Cream Farm for a quick play and a treat. Once they had unpacked, the sun appeared and they set off on a 3 hour trek up the famous Burwardsley Hill (some now call it a mountain!) to build dens and learn about different habitats and nature. Once back, they then enjoyed a scrumptious evening meal, followed by cake, ice cream and jelly.

After a lovely meal the children enjoyed a willow weaving activity, making fish. They then moved outdoors to a campfire; singing songs, eating marshmallows and sharing stories. They then settled down to a hot chocolate and storytime with Mr Booth.

After a good night’s sleep, the children were fully fed and ready for more action! First off they visited the roundhouse to learn about how people lived in the Iron Age. They then channelled our design skills, making clay pots. To round off the morning, the children became archaeologists, digging for interesting finds.

The children embraced two days of fun and interactive learning and Mr Booth, Mrs Bradley, Mrs McClearn and Mrs Wells returned to school feeling incredibly proud of our 6 and 7 year olds.
