Hooke Court

Y4 Camp - The children  had a fantastic time on camp. They constructed shelters using items

they found in the forests and all enjoyed toasted marshmallows and a camp fire sing song in the evening.

After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, the children donned their Victorian outfits and spent the day learning about what it was like to be a child during the 19th century by practising their handwriting, using a quill and ink and sewing their own bookmarks.

As well as experiencing how Victorian servants washed the clothes of their employers, the children had fun playing Victorian games.

In the evening, a Victorian feast was served. Following this, the children were enthusiastic to take

part in a dance under the chandeliers. The boys bravely asked the awaiting girls to write them on their dance cards and learnt some tricky steps before heading to the dance floor. All the children were great sports and participated with eagerness.

Camp went out with a bang with den building and river study taking place on our final morning. All of the children were much quieter on the coach home after an exhausting but fabulous three days away at Hooke Court.
