Stanwick Lakes visit
On Monday 13th May 5SU and 5SW went to Stanwick Lakes to build shelters and learn survival skills, as part of their Robin Hood topic.
Shelter building was the main activity. Whilst one class went to play in a different area, the other class listened to some safety tips before they started building. There were two rangers who showed them a basic frame for their 'tent' to help them get started. All the children were put into groups. Quickly, the enthusiastic children got their heads around their design for their shelters.
They all tried their hardest to get the result that they did. (Look below to see the results.) All of them were unique and good ideas. One of the popular frames had one branch with a V shape on either side,and a long branch across the top, which was then tied to the other branches. They all very much enjoyed the day at Stanwick, including the staff!

Sulgrave Manor Visit
Despite the inclement weather on Monday 5SU had a very informative and enjoyable day at Master Washington's grand manor house.
We dressed up as Tudors, behaved as Tudor children and saw how rich and poor lived. We enjoyed writing with a quill and ink, learning a little Latin and playing with Tudor toys.
Everyone agreed the outfits looked great and most of us said we would like to return in warmer weather!
