We were lucky enough to have Ranger Paul to take us down to a beautiful riverside spot in Ilam where we had a […]

Last Day at Ilam!

Last night was our last night at Ilam Hall and the children settled down to sleep very quickly indeed (must have been all that racing around and the fact that we spent a large amount of the day outside).  So, the majority of children needed to be woken up this morning to start their day […]

Recycling Bags

First we designed our bags on a piece of paper.  We wanted to have memories of our trip to Ilam Hall on our bags so we don’t forget our amazing trip.  Once we had our design, we copied it onto our bags using wax crayons.  All of our designs were unique and each one has […]

The children have been studying maps with Miss Hart in Geography so found the map reading relatively easy … however trying to put their knowledge into practice was very different! They eventually got the hang of looking at the maps and […]
