July 2012 - 21 children from Years 3 and 4 made another trip to the Stibbington Centre for Environmental Education near Peterborough for a three day residential visit. Despite the rain of the previous months, we were lucky to avoid the downpours until the final day when we got soaked!

With mapping and rocks being on the agenda, Stibbington's nature reserve was visited where we avoided the pirates...this time! We also spent a morning walking around the small village studying some of the buildings and how important rocks are in our daily lives.

             

One of the first tasks upon arrival was unpacking in the bedrooms.

The children learnt some mapping skills whilst at Stibbington and they used their knowledge to help them navigate around the centre grounds. They compared rocks in the classroom and helped to solve a crime CSI style as someone had 'stolen' the treasure chest. Fortunately their excellent detective skills were able to track down the 'culprit' at which point it was realised that the whole thing was a misunderstanding.

 

We then explored the grounds.
   
 
 
 
Everyone has the opportunity of working in the Crunch Carrott Cafe setting tables, reading out the menu and helping to clear away.
   
The grounds at Stibbington provide ample opportunity to explore, play and relax. Even the rain doesn't stop play at Stibbington.
