On Friday 15th October we went to Hillier Gardens. When we first got there we saw a lady with a mask and a hat on both really high. She started talking to us for a bit then she took off her hat and mask and we realised it was Mrs Hoyland, our old teacher, we were all so surprised that it was her.
The activities that we were going to do were den building, whittling, fire starting and cooking apples.
My favourite activity was the fire starting because I loved striking the flint and steel. First Mrs Hoyland showed us how to strike the flint and steel.Then she gave us all a fire striker to strike, I did it second time and it was really easy. After that Mrs Hoyland gave us all a cotton pad with some vaseline on and we started striking but I couldn't strike it so one of my friends did it for me. The last thing that Mrs Hoyland told us about fire was that you should put the back of your hand above the fire because if you put your palm over it and a flame came up you would grab it.
After that activity we went to the den building. We made a tepee den and we leaned all of the sticks against each other and untied some string from something then tied it around our den. It was a complete structure. Then we got lots of leaves to put on the roof of it as we wanted to do the water test. We got some ferns and other waterproof leaves to put on top. There was only room for two people, our structure was very good, we loved it.
The next activity was cooking apples. First Sarah told us how to put the apples onto the stick. She told us that you needed to twist the apple onto the stick.Then she showed us how to cook the apple and how to know when it is cooked. When you think it is cooked feel it with the back of your hand and if it is really warm it's cooked. Once the apples were cooked Mrs J poured some honey on it and it was yum.
Our final activity was whittling, Mrs G gave us all a potato peeler and a stick then she showed us how to whittle. We started to whittle, it was really easy to do! After we finished she gave us some colouring pens to draw on our sticks.
This was the best school trip ever!!!!!!!

Year 6 Calshot 2021
June 2021 saw our Year 6's visit Calshot for their residential trip. Much fun was had by children and teachers!
Friday Day 5
Kayaks today, wetsuits and paddles at the ready,
Launch from beach to the sea keep the kayak steady.
Sea salt marshes, open water and coast,
Of this last activity we want to make the most.
Our time is over, last lunch, ice-cream by the sea,
There’s no other place, this week, we’d rather be.
The laughs, the play, the teamwork the fun.
For Flo, Mouse, Ruby, Henry, Tristan, Oli, ‘T’, Amelie, Will, Reuben, Calshot time is now done.
We had the best time with you all and are immensely proud of you. Your determination, courage, resilience and all round wonderful-ness is a privilege to be a part of.
Mrs J, Mrs G and Mrs H
Thursday Day 4
The wind in our sails, we don’t want to go slow.
Riding the waves, ducking the boom,
Steering boats across the sea oodles of room.
Helmets, harnesses it must be climb time!
Feet on the ledges, hands hold on fine.
A belay, a Tailor keep each climber tight
Pulling the rope through with all of their might.
Tunnels, swings, low ropes, mushrooms and beams.
Across, over, under, swaying this way and that
Showing initiative and courage til all feet stand down flat.
Day 3 Wednesday 9th June
Get on, stack those crates, climb as you go.
Don’t wobble too much or you’ll hang in mid air
The ropes pulling tight, your trousers will tear.
The slopes ‘call’ once more, so on with the skis.
To get down in one piece we must all bend our knees.
Up on the lift to the top of the slope
Tip off the edge, stay upright we hope!
A trip on the bus took us out to the woods.
A compass, a map. Finding clues should be good!
Charging around through the bushes we sought
All the markers- now found-back to base we were brought.
Calshot Day 2 - Tuesday June 8th
Calshot Day 1 - Monday June 7th
The sun was shining and the sky was blue
It couldn’t start better with so much to do
In our first day of fun, we conquered the slopes,
Slipping and sliding but not losing hope.
A little beach walk after a hearty lunch
Then we headed for archery, an excited bunch.
Our aim of the game was to laugh long and loud
With bows and arrows, Robin Hood would be proud.
Another stroll and a quick dinner date,
Evening rockets, to make the day great.
We watched the sunset, collected shells,
Everyone’s happy and all is well.
Love from Year 6
