OnThursday 16th March, a group of children went to Hothersall Lodge where we had a fun day taking part in orienteering activities, soaring down the zip line and learning to steer canoes around the Lake. It was a great way to use our Christian values of trust, respect, courage and perseverence. All the children really pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and should be very proud of themselves.

Each class started to collect items from these four categories: Wash, Wear, Write and WOW! For example, wash;- shampoo, write:- pens and pencils, wear:- hats and gloves and WOW:- a treat such as a chocolate bar.
We filled shoe boxes with all our gifts and then wrapped them in Christmas paper.

The worst bit was the end product! It was a great learning opportunity.
