Nell Bank 2016: Day 3

The final day at Nell Bank dawned bright and sunny, with the children making the most of their last hours in the beautiful woodland surroundings.

All too soon it was time to pack up and head home, but everyone was treated to one last concert by Mr Smith before the bus arrived to take them back to school

Despite the beautiful sunny start to the walk up Ilkley Moor having turned to rain at around 2pm, it didn't stop Year 4 enjoying their ice-creams on the way back to Nell Bank! Showers for everyone were followed by a concert from Mr Smith and another delicious meal. The day was rounded off with some time on the adventure playground, diary writing and finally singing and toasting marshmallows by the campfire. Another very busy day!

Nell Bank 2016: Day 1

Year 4 have had a very busy first day at Nell Bank!

After arriving and having lunch, they set off on a sunny - but very muddy! - Woodland Walk, where they saw lots of interesting things, followed by the Habitat Trail.

After this was the task of building shelters, which was sadly cut short by an incoming snowstorm!

The children used the extra time to unpack and set up their beds for the night, before a superb evening meal. This was followed by writing the diaries of their busy day (aided by some quiet background music), and then parachute games until bedtime. Another busy day tomorrow!

Mad Science

Callum came to assembly to talk to the children about Mad Science, a programme for children and their families that we are hosting every Friday.  He showed the children some mind blowing science and in the picture, our two volunteers were treated to a carbon dioxide shower!
