Beeston Residential 2019 - Beech, by Miss Manton

We had a fantastic time at Beeston! On our first day we enjoyed a lovely, but very wet walk to Beeston Castle and we explored the woods finding lots of interesting objects along the way. During the Evening, we weaved fish out of willow and drank hot chocolate around a campfire. Tuesday morning saw lots of tired faces! However, we still had a great time in our Stone Age Workshop. We learned how to grind flour and we made our own bread around the campfire. We also learned how a hunter gatherer would catch their own food using a bow and arrow. Everyone had an amazing time and I am very proud of everyone for their fantastic behaviour and for being excellent ambassadors for our school! Hope you all sleep well this weekend!

The whole of Year 3 went to Beeston for 2 days and 1 night. We were very busy the whole time and we enjoyed every minute! We took part in many activities such as; team building games, a walk to  Beeston Castle, exploring local woods to find interesting things, Dairy writing, a campfire with hot chocolate and a singsong, a bedtime story, we learnt how stone age people grinded wheat to make flour, peeled bark of sticks using a stone age knife, another campfire - after collecting our own kindling, we made stoneage bread (with honey of course!), we then had a go at Archery ( what a hunter gatherer would do) and much more inbetween, inlcuding eating yummy food! Everyone had a brilliant time and would like to go again!
