Yr 3/4 Residential Visit

13th July 2014

The Earth Works pupils and staff had an excellent two-day residential visit, staying at Alnwick Youth Hostel.

We started with an Anlwick town trail and treasure hunt,stopping off for an ice lolly break under the Market Cross.

We completed a five mile walk in Hulne Park; exploring the route of the Aln and its tributaries, as well as the beautiful Priory. Everyone played 'Pooh sticks' on one of the bridges.

We had time to explore back at the hostel before evening meal. Everyone started on their visit diaries before time to play in Swansfield Park. There were group games and hot chocolate before story time and bed.

Day two was spent doing the Knight's Quest in Alnwick Castle; having broomstick flying lessons, making soap and clay tiles. Then on to Alnwick Gardens to explore the Cascade, water features and gardens.
