Event - Year 3's Sleepover

6 September 2013

This term Year 3 are working on a new topic called Adventurers and Explorers.

To begin this topic, the children imagined themselves as explorers and planned what they would need to take with them on an adventure. Working in groups, the children then designed and built their own shelters in the school's forest area and ended the evening with a sleepover in the school hall.

Everyone had a wonderful evening and learned lots about teamwork, outdoor safety, exploring and using our creativity and imagination.

Excited parents drop off explorers for overnight stay.
Explorers gather materials for their shelters - excellent team work!

Warming up by the fire with hot chocolate and marshmallows.

Explorers huddle under their shelter to eat their biscuits.
Getting dark - luckily the explorers were well prepared with torches!

Setting up camp, in the hall, ready for a well earned rest!
Peace at last.
