Year 4 Residential to Folly Farm

The Year 4s had a fantastic overnight stay last week at Folly Farm, an educational centre just outside Bristol.  The accommodation, with its far-reaching views, was superb and the surrounding woodlands were waiting to be explored!

We squeezed in so many activities in just a couple of days: mini-beast hunting; making a home for a small mammal; pond-dipping; using identification charts; dissecting owl pellets; setting up humane traps to catch small mammals, filled with plenty of food and straw for their overnight stay, and releasing them the following morning; night walking; listening out for owls and bats; shelter building and fire-lighting!

We also enjoyed the delicious evening meal and cooked breakfast, eating our packed lunches out on the lawn, cooking over a fire and sharing a room with friends.  A huge amount of fun was fitted into 30 hours! Most of the photos are on the school website, but here are a few to whet your appetite…
