Wow! What a trip. Hazel Class were simply fantastic. Despite a very late night (only settling into our sleeping bags at 11pm), after a torchlit hunt around the museum for Stone Age artefacts, working in teams to build a mammoth out of cardboard and a snack and bedtime story, the children got their kits organised sensibly and comfy and were so respectful of each other when going to sleep. They showed a maturity beyond their ages - it was the adults that actually found it harder to sleep!
We then woke up bright an early, with the Museum lights flashing on - much to the disgust of the children - and had a walk around Chichester Cathedral. We then jumped on the minibuses and headed to Itchenor Harbour, where the sun finally graced us with its presence. Hazel Class enjoyed a calming trip around the harbour on a solar-powered boat and then jumped off and enjoyed a picturesque lunch on the shoreline, followed by beach combing which was led by Chichester Harbour Conservancy staff.
All in all a wonderful but jam packed two days, where the children represented Great Binfields beautifully. Thank you Hazel Class!
