Fencing and archery

The children tried out fencing and archery today.

Our fencing instructor was very impressed with how quickly year 5 picked up all of the footwork and techniques. Can you spot the children lunging to attack in the photos?

It took us a while to learn how to load up our bows in archery but we got there in the end.

Pre-breakfast jobs

Before breakfast the children had to complete jobs around the site. These included: litter picking; sweeping the barn, cow shed, cloakroom and walkways; and setting the tables ready for their first meal of the day.
