Welcome to Horse Chestnut Class


Wow! What a first day. We have had some much laughter my sides ache. Really easy train journey followed by a steep long trek up to the castle. Even though it was only 10.45am lunch was the first thing on their minds. All the children had to make their own beds; this caused some difficulty for some, with one person doubling her lifetime bed making achievement of doing it on the first attempt. The first days activities have been a mixture of caving, rocket Olympics, zip wire, team challenge and trapeze! everyone was shattered by the end of the day and very much looking forward to what is happening on Saturday.  We already beyond proud of this fantastic group. 

Thanks to Tom, who has played Lysander from Mid Summer Night's Dream profesionally, and came in to lead our Drama workshop.
