Poppy Class - Year 4


Teacher: Miss Bowden
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hayward-Leach

At the end of June, Poppy Class visited Charney Manor for a one night residential. We arrived on the Thursday and filled out our Feelings Chart to show how we were feeling about the trip at various times. We did lots of drawing and watercolour painting and, after lunch, we went into the village to look at how it has changed and we did a bug hunt around Charney Field. The children found a variety of bugs ranging from beetles, ladybirds and even hornets!

We then went back for a bit of a play and ate a hearty dinner of Spaghetti Bolognese and jelly and ice cream! After dinner, we went back to Charney Field and played a very competitive game of rounders!

Before bed we enjoyed a game of bingo in which Mrs Leach tested the children's mental arithmetic and Miss Bowden read us all a bedtime story. Everyone slept well, some longer than others!

On the Friday, we woke up to a yummy breakfast of cereals, crumpets and toast and then ventured to the church. Mrs Adamson gave the children a guided history of the church and we all had a good look around. We then went back the Manor to finish our paintings and have lunch before getting ready to come back to school.

Everyone had a great time and were thoroughly exhausted by Friday hometime!
