Brilliant Hilltop trip for Years 3-6!

Our Years 3-6 pupils returned today from their fantastic residential trip away at Hilltop Outdoor Centre near Sheringham. They took part in so many exciting and challenging activities – from the vertical challenge and climbing wall to toasting marshmallows on camp fires they had made themselves.  On their last morning – today – after a big breakfast they tackled the zip wire (look at the video clip below to see why teamwork is important!) and archery.

Of course, a huge part of the fun was sleeping away from home – for some children this was the first time they had done this. The teachers report that everyone was very good and slept well, with no talking after lights out…but we expect there will be some tired children at bedtime tonight!

Look out for a gallery with more pictures on the blog next week.

Superb first day at Hilltop for Years 3-6!

We have just heard from one of our teachers at Hilltop Outdoor Centre with Years 3-6. She says the children have had a superb first day outdoors making camp fires, playing games and toasting marshmallows, amongst other adventures. Everyone is tired and happy and looking forward to their supper!
