Burwardsley residential
Year 5 went on their overnight residential to Burwardsley. The children had a great time exploring the very muddy grounds, learning about life in the stone, bronze and iron ages, exploring the iron age roundhouse, making clay pots, being archaeologists and using their excellent map skills orienteering around the grounds. A very busy couple of days!!
