After waving good bye to their parents, Year Five set off on their much anticipated trip to Sayers Croft. There was a buzz of excitement in the air as they arrived at Sayers Croft to begin their three-day stay. They braved the ice cold weather to go pond dipping and exploring river features in the local river as well as practising outdoor skills such as building shelters and orienteering. The evenings were spent by the campfire toasting marsh mallows and drinking hot chocolate while the days were jam packed without door activities that immersed the children in nature. Year Five embraced the outdoors with great enthusiasm and certainly developed a great sense of independence while they were away. They also represented St Saviour’s School exceptionally well indeed. The countdown now begins to their Year 6 Residential trip.
