Year 4’s trip to Gibside was a fantastic success. The children were involved with lots of activities. On Monday, we worked together in groups on the Gibside hunt. Later on, we made dens, we learnt how to make a fire safely, roasted marshmallows and finally placed food in different areas along with cameras to track which animals ate our bait. On Tuesday, we watched our animal investigation footage and found that many animals had taken our food such as deer, badgers, mice and birds. To end our trip, the children were involved in a nature art activity and had time to play in the play area at Strawberry Castle. The children had great fun staying over at Gibside and have made so many memories!
