Last Monday Year 4 spent a lovely day at Minsteracres Education Centre near Slaley, Northumberland. We started the day with a liturgy to remind us of the beauty of creation and to prepare us for the day ahead.
Then the children were split into three groups to perform a carousel of activities. Mrs Jordan stayed in the Education centre to help the children make collage crosses. Mrs Storey took children for walks in the beautiful woods, down by the lake and up to the chapel in the retreat centre. Mrs Toward worked with us in the Peace Garden, where we listened to nature around us before sketching plants, buildings and objects that interested us. After lunch we explored the grounds of the centre and we even managed to fit in a mini sport’s day practice!
What a wonderful peaceful day we had in Northumberland.
