Highlights of Year 4’s Camp

One of the highlights of Year 4 is the much anticipated annual overnight camp which takes place in June. This year we arrived at the beautiful tree-filled site at Abington in gloriously sunny weather, and the children quickly got to grips with erecting their tents. The afternoon was spent learning wood crafting skills, some basic orienteering and map reading, as well as the ever popular fire-lighting activity! After some enjoyable wide-games, the children cooked their supper over the campfire and sang songs before snuggling into their sleeping bags. For many of the children, this was their first night ‘under canvas’ and everyone slept remarkably well. The children returned home after a hearty breakfast the following morning, very much looking forward to their longer camp in the Peak District next year.
