On Thursday the 6th to Friday the 7th of May Year 6 slept in Captain Phillimore’s woods overnight.
We went down to the woods on Thursday to build our bivvies (out of string and water-proof sheets). Everyone worked really well together so they went up really quickly and luckily none of them fell down.
When we arrived at the woods that evening we sang songs around the camp fire and had a mug of hot chocolate to warm us up. Mmmm. Then we got into our bivvies ready for the night. Some of us actually fell asleep!
The following morning we had camp fire sausages before taking down our bivvies, doing a scavenger hunt and returning to school. Overall everyone had a great time despite how little sleep they had!
