Sayers Croft: Day 4Posted on: 07/10/2021
Our last full day at Sayers Croft and nobody is ready to leave but we managed to pack so much in today! We started off the day with a dorm inspection, where the boys and girls equalised their points. They’ve all become very competent bed makers – a habit we hope continues in London!
We then changed target and headed to the archery range where we were joined by Ms Harney! Our next activity was constructing Roman catapults and launching balls at a target. This swiftly turned into a fun water fight where Miss Cassidy and Miss Tan acted as the willing victims.
After lunch, we gathered in the forest to have some quiet time to listen to nature and create some unbe-leaf-able natural art using the materials we found around us. We then had an art show where the children showed off their creations and could talk to the group about their meanings.
We then stepped back in time to a Celtic round house where we sharpened our skills by throwing spears at boars, trying on Roman soldiers’ clothing and practising our battle shield formations.
After dinner we got ready for the much-anticipated Year 6 disco. The children loved getting dressed up. To make it a night to remember, we fuelled up with hot chocolate and marshmallows before heading to the expertly-DJed disco. A wonderful time was had by all and we guessed you could hear our renditions of Dance Monkey and the YMCA all the way from Covent Garden!
We have an early start tomorrow to get the most out of our final moments together here, and we look forward to seeing all your smiley faces on Drury Lane tomorrow!
