Day 4 at Lea Green: another fantastic day! Group 1 have learnt to canoe and paddleboard during the Watersports Day at Carsington Water. Group 2 enjoyed the Stream Walk this morning and the Low Ropes course this afternoon. The morning was spent orienteering and bouldering for Group 3, followed by Team Swing - a highlight for many children! This evening, we will be working in teams to complete the 'eggs can fly' challenge.

A huge well done to Year 6 for their hard work and determination in putting on a fantastic production of Bah Humbug!
Year 6 had a thought-provoking day at the National Holocaust Centre and Museum in Newark. As part of 'Leo's Journey' exhibition, the children experienced what a Jewish child's life might've been like before and during WWII, which linked to our work in Topic and RE lessons. They also had the opportunity to hear the first-hand account of a Holocaust speaker, Bob Norton.
