Last night Year 4 stayed at school for their class camping experience and sleepover. I was so impressed with how well the children behaved and they gave everything a go.

To begin with, in groups they each made a den using tarpaulin, rope and camping poles. They worked incredibly well as a group and all created a den that they could cook their meal in on a camping stove.

Next it was time to cook their choice of beans or spaghetti hoops. After a safety demonstration from Mrs Ewins they were ready to cook! Whilst the children prepared their beans or spaghetti, Mr Cockcroft cooked the sausages and burgers on the barbecue.

After they had eaten their tea it was time for team building activities, which included carpet tile challenge, water tower and plastic guttering challenge.

The children particularly enjoyed the water tower challenge, despite the fact they were all soaked!

After all the team building activities and team races, it was nearly time for bed. However before that it was time for hot chocolate and to toast marshmallows.

A huge well done to Imogen and Amelia V for their excellent fire making skills and well done to Leo and Max for their efforts too: despite finding it difficult, the boys didn’t give up!

Once the marshmallows had been eaten it was time for bed. All the children slept well and enjoyed their bacon and sausage barms this morning!

A huge thank you to Mrs Ewins who organised the sleepover, Mr Cockcroft and Mr Tomkins for staying over and Mrs Fielding and Mrs Scallan for staying after school.

I really enjoyed the sleepover. Everyone behaved really well and my best part of it was the dens and the barbeque. I also enjoyed the hot chocolate and the marshmallow roasting. This was the best sleepover ever!

I loved the sleep over so much and I think everyone enjoyed it too. I’ll miss year four when we leave to go into year five. I couldn’t believe that I made a fire with flint and steel and I loved the marshmallows.


Laura McLoughlin · 22nd June 2017 at 11:23 am

I enjoyed the sleepover so much and I bet everyone else did too. Everything was so much fun but my favourite bit was making the dens (I also liked when we were squirted by water!) I loved the marshmallows and I can’t wait when we do this again in year 5!

Looks like fun was had by all at the Year 4 sleepover. I noticed a lot of you said the den making was your favourite part but I think the water pipe activity looked like great fun. Glad you all had fun and that the weather was kind to you. Thank you to all involved in organising and implementing the sleepover for the children 🙂
