Y6’s school trip to Aylmerton Field Studies Centre
Y6 had an amazing week away enjoying lots of different activities covering geography field studies, team building, OAA as part of the PE curriculum, science field studies and some just for fun!
It is always a really fun week away and the children all grow in confidence and independence. This year the children were particularly outstanding ambassadors for the school and were frequently praised for their manners, conduct and knowledge.
What did they have to say about the week? See some extracts from their thank you letters below…
‘I had an amazing time particularly when we went on the mud walk because we collected loads of semi-precious stones and it was an amazing experience walking through mud, lakes and collecting cockles.’
‘I had a phenomenal time at Aylmerton.’
‘My favourite part was when people kept falling over in Blakeney on the mud flats.’
‘To be honest I enjoyed every single moment and every single laugh we shared.’
What a wonderful week we had at Aylmerton Field Study Centre in Norfolk!
Everyone enjoyed their stay and really participated throughout the week. We have a very full itinerary from beach walking on the Norfolk coast observing the erosion and sea defences to rock pooling ,boating on the Norfolk Broads and being pirates for the day.
The children learn to work as a team by improving their communication skills ,encouragement and determination to complete all of their tasks to their best ability. This years class really excelled in their participation in all of the activities.
They made scary and convincing pirates while they managed the low ropes and the bosuns chair. They also enjoyed their late night walk in the forest discovering the activities of the local bats using sonar and all of their map reading activities.
The children were busy from dawn to beyond dusk including swimming at the local pool with the wave machine and flume. Needless to say they were keen for their breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Aylmerton kitchen certainly doesn’t disappoint us as the food is plentiful and delicious.
They have come back to school raring to go and quite grown up . Well done Year 6
Please find below our itinerary for the week as well as some other useful information.
Information for Parents
On Wednesday 26th June, Mr Crispin, a local magistrate visited year 5 and 6. We set up a ‘court’ and held a trial.
We took the parts of the defendant, lawyers, witnesses and magistrates. It was a very fun morning and we also learned lots about the law in England.
