Isle of Wight March 2019

 

We had a lovely time at the Isle of Wight.  On the first day we met at Mayflower Park and travelled via ferry to the Isle of Wight.  Then we visited Dinosaur Expeditions near Brighstone.  We drew dinosaurs, learnt about dinosaurs, found fossils, completed a quiz and walked on the beach hunting fossils.  We even got to take some fossils away with us!

 

Back at East Dene we had lots of fun making our own beds and we were all very ready to sit down and eat a delicious dinner together.  It was exciting to sleep in dormitories and to all have hot chocolate and a bedtime story together.

 

The next day was our activity day at East Dene.  We learnt all about erosion on the beach and created Art sculptures.  We took part in team building exercises including getting extremely muddy and a little bit wet.  One of the best bits was creating our own fire and then having a bonfire.  We were so tired by bedtime.

 

On our last morning, the teachers had to wake us up!  We visited Osborne House where Queen Victoria lived.  We were all very tired on the ferry back home and we ate our lunch talking together about the lovely time that we had had.  We were very sad to have to end our trip but so pleased to see our grown-ups!

 

Well done year four for your wonderful behaviour and for being so much fun.  We had a super time!
