Stubbington – 09.09.21

Today we woke up early and had a cooked breakfast and cereal, it was tasty. After breakfast we checked on the small mammal hotels that we had put out last night. We caught three animals altogether, they were all bank voles. We studied the bank voles carefully and a few hours later released them back to their habitats.
After that, we had lunch of macaroni cheese, sausage roll or hot dogs. The pudding today was chocolate doughnuts or chocolate stubby biscuits.
After lunch, we went to the Anglo Saxon longhouse and looked at the artefacts, we also had a go at excavating artefacts and looked at Anglo Saxon coins. Then we did some team building activities on the play equipment. The other group did the Earthquake challenge, this was also a team building task.
We have also been able to visit the tuck shop this afternoon and use the games room.
