During the week of 4th May, the Year 4 class will be embarking on an adventure, their first residential! They are all very excited and ready to explore the English countryside and learn more about English history.
You can follow what the children have been up to via twitter @Green_Lane_PA or via this blog. Twitter will be updated in real time as information about their activities are sent to the academy. The blog will be updated on an evening.
LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN!
Wednesday 6th May 2015
The day started bright and early with Year 4 children and parents arriving for 8 am in order to get sorted for the three days ahead. The children were excited and the parents anxious.
The first stop was Angel of the North. They all look so small compared to the massive sculpture!
The Roman Army Museum was just down the road. It was back to lessons for them in the Roman classroom where a hologram of a Roman soldier tried to teach them Latin! Then, in true British tradition, a picnic in the rain! They weren’t bothered! They were having too much fun!
Vindolanda was next on the agenda. So, after their picnic, they packed up and headed out!
They had a fantastic time visiting the ruins, talking to archaeologists and tiring out the staff!
It has been a long day. But, it is not finished. Time to head to the youth hostel. There is unpacking to do, beds to be made and tea to be had. There is a coach load of tired people!
Today’s adventures in a video.
Beds are made, showers taken, PJ’s on and dinner has been had. A few activities and then bedtime at 8 pm. Well, maybe!

It has been another busy day on the Year 4 Residential. At 7 am, everyone got moving, dressed and beds made! As one parent said, “Who is that child and what have you done with my son?!” The children enjoyed their breakfast and got busy with a whole list of activities that included diary writing, postcards, art, Roman Soldier training, jewellery making and more! The children are enjoying their time and, with the sun shining, they are making many amazing memories!
Here is Part 1 of Day 2. (Individual photos can be found on our Twitter feed, @Green_Lane_PA )
