It was a real treat to be invited to join our new Year 2 classes on their trip to Eastnor Castle on Monday. On arrival, the children enjoyed some fun and games in an impressive adventure play area, where Mr Wren was particularly taken with the Landrover Defender! Each class then took a tour of the castle, with an incredibly well informed Patricia, before heading out for a walk around the beautiful grounds and lake. After a picnic, and a hilarious game of hide and seek, we all headed over to the Knights Maze. Sending 30 six year olds into a maze, designed to be almost impossible to solve, proved to be a rather stressful experience for the staff, although many of the children said that this was the highlight of their day. When we had safely collected everyone together (and completed a number of head counts – just in case) it was time to get on the bus and head back to school. Thank you to Mr Wren, Mrs Franklin and Mrs Jenkins for organising such a ‘stunning start’ for Year 2.
