Following the heavy downpour of rain this morning, things were looking a little bleak for Y5 ahead of departing for Stubbington. However, the rain soon passed and spirits were not ‘dampened’. Y5 have had an exciting start to their residential, making good use of their gSTEM skills, through building dens. The children are settled in their accommodation and enjoying Stubby life. There will be a daily Gomer Blog for more information – please do follow the week long Y5 adventure – memories in the making!

An extract from today’s blog:

‘Both classes had pond dipping and shelter building this afternoon in glorious bright sunshine. Mrs Toone and Mrs Guyett-Smith both agreed that the dens that the children built this year were far better than any previous years and were completely delighted to hear the children using the gSTEM wheel to work out how to solve the problem. Mrs Toone and Mrs O’Brien had far too much fun ‘testing’ the shelters to see how waterproof they were. Mrs Toone  resorted to throwing water in through the front door as the rest of the den was so watertight.’
