WOW! What a fantastic day Amazons have had at Bring Yer Wellies!
We most definitely didn’t need our wellies as the sunshine was glorious; a perfect day for an outdoor trip.
We began with a play on the “beach”, followed by a chat with our helper Nigel about what plants need to survive and how to look after them. Then we weaved through the herb garden and got to smell some lovely herbs – spearmint and lemongrass. After that, we put our newfound knowledge into practice and planted our very own spearmint and peppermint plants, before relaxing on the grass for lunch.
After refuelling, we worked in 2 teams – Miss Wilks’ team and Mrs Berryman’s team – to carry long sticks and sheets to make a den. Our other helper Melissa said that Amazons were the most sensible class she had ever had den building. Miss Wilks and Mrs Berryman were very proud! Finally, we were given a boat per team to name which we then took down to the brook to race in the current. Mrs’ Berryman’s team, the Minty Pirates, were victorious!
The children were an absolute credit to themselves and the school and a wonderful time was had by all!
Here are some pictures from the day.
