When we arrived at Nell Bank, we were greeted by the fantastic staff, led by Ally.  After this, we were split into 2 groups to have a go at making fires, flour and baskets.  Matt and Rachel showed us some Stong Age tools.  In the afternoon we worked in groups to build our own dens.  We had some time to play in the adventure playground, we had a brilliant time, but we were very tired!

Friday 31st March

Last week Friday we visited Nell Bank and we had an amazing time! On arrival to Nell Bank we met with Rob and Ally who looked after us! Our theme for the day was all about survival. Ally and Rob taught us how we could survive on an island if we were shipwrecked! We learnt how to light fires using flint, make bowls from dry grass, make flour from seeds and even how to build shelters. We had so much fun on the day and to top off our amazing visit, we got to play on the HUGE climbing frame! Our journey back was just as great as we had songs sung to us by Miss Firth, Mr Calcraft and Miss Irish! 

When we came back to school we made posters about our time at Nell Bank. We will be sending some of them to Ally and Rob to show our appreciation for allowing us to have such a great day!

Year 1 Hockney visited Nell Bank in Ilkley.  We explored our 5 senses.

We went on a smell hunt with Badger; followed a blind-folded-Mole-maze using our sense of touch; hid from Owl in the willow trees as she used her sense of sight; and ran away from Weasel through the rabbit tunnel listening for danger. We explored natural habitats and had fun with the water play.

Tuesday 21st - Friday 24th March

We all took part in a variety of outdoor activities to promote team building, challenging ourselves and perseverance. These included caving, high and low ropes, The Buckden Challenge involving solving tasks as you walk through Buckden and Hubberholme, orienteering and a 3 mile walk.
The children also had to make their own beds, clear and set tables and generally look after themselves. We played games in the evening, had the St Stephen's Talent show and finished with hot chocolate and cake.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are already talking about the Year 6 residential to Ambleside.
