Our group of children at Hooke Court are still having the most amazing time! They have been cooking, creating boats, dancing around the camp fire, preparing for battle and writing in Greek!
90 Year 4 children woke up this morning bright eyed after a brilliant first night of their residential trip. Today, the children have had a fun packed and educational day that included taking part in a Greek battle! Luckily, the battle ended with smiles on everyone’s faces and the children thrilled that they had experienced the excitement of battle.
The children have also enjoyed getting their hands dirty whilst making a Greek goblet. We have some keen potters in the year group!
Today, they have also learned about the Greek alphabet and tried to write their own names in Greek. It took a lot of concentration to use a quill and ink pot.
It is lovely to see them all having such an amazing time and we will share any more photos that we get from the staff with you all tomorrow.
The Year 5 children arrived safely at Hooke Court yesterday and have been having a brilliant time. They have had a very muddy experience in WW1 trenches and enjoyed singing some songs from that era.
The Hooke Court staff have also commented on how well they have all eaten – the clearest plates of any school they have had!
All had a good nights sleep and are thoroughly enjoying the experience.
