'Today we have been coasteering. We jumped off lots of rocks into the sea. It was really cool and the waves were really strong!'
'We made our own rafts this morning and some of us managed to sail them on the sea.'
'After coasteering and raft building we went on a leisurely coastal walk. We got creative and made portraits of some of our teachers out of things we found on the beach. They were really impressed!'
'After all the activity this morning we enjoyed a relaxing walk along the beach and played some games. Looking forward to going crabbing tonight.'
'This evening we went crabbing in Swanage. We caught loads of crabs including a giant spider crab!'

The Year 5 children went to Swanage seafront this morning. They went kayaking and explored the area while completing and orienteering activity where they had to follow a map and answer questions. Later in the evening, they all attended a disco where they danced the night away! Here's what they had to say about today's events:
'We are having great fun at the beach today! Getting into a wetsuit was a new experience!'
'I really enjoyed kayaking because we got to go in the sea and swim with the fish.' Alfie 5B
'I'm enjoying learning how to paddle in a kayak and crashing against the waves - it's awesome!' Owen 5M
'It was fantastic going to the beach with my friends and playing games in the waves.' Gabriele 5G
'It was amazing in my orienteering group - we found unusual landmarks and did you know that the station in Swanage is called Santa Fe?' Leon 5G
'The disco was a legend, we had a dance off and the boys won (of course). My favourite bit was watching the limboing because it was so funny.' - Liam 5G

The children enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast with so many options before starting their morning activities - bushcraft and pioneering including fire building and archery.
'We loved eating the marshmallows!'.
'This afternoon, we enjoyed team games on the sports courts. After a lovely dinner, we held a mini Olympics!'

Tuesday 12th March
"Great fun was had at the disco last night. The teachers were showing us their moves. Everyone slept well last night and is ready for the today’s activities."
"After an exhilarating day of exciting activities and an evening disco, we had the most amazing night sleep! We have just had a delicious breakfast and can't wait for our daytime activities."
"Today we’ve spent the day being Saxons. This morning we made pottage, bread and cauldron snakes, we tasted it and it was delicious. Later this morning, we made own Saxon jewellery and learnt how to weave. It was tricky but very relaxing. Then this afternoon we wrote our names using runes and experienced fence building using wattle and daub. All finished off with a shield war. We’re looking forward to Saxon stories and songs around the campfire tonight."
"We had stories and sang songs around the campfire. We learnt some great new songs and can’t wait to share them with our parents."
Monday 16th July
Year 6 have arrived safely at Gordon Brown and had a fantastic first day! We had a tour of the huge grounds and met all the animals. Some of us have tested our teamwork and strength on the trim trail and low ropes while others have given Robin Hood a run for his money with amazing archery skills. We then went on a spooky night walk to finish off our first day here.
