Dell Farm

At the beginning of June, some of our Year 3, 4 and 5 children enjoyed a residential trip to Dell Farm, where they enjoyed taking part in archery, caving and survival skills.


On the way we were pretending to be Robin Hood and Little John, it was funny! When we got to archery field, we were put in groups, and we gave our group a name. Conor told us how to use a bow. We had a little tournament and Alfie hit the bull's eye! My team was not happy with that because he was not in our team. Alfie's team won the tournament.

Then Conor set us a challenge. He said the team that got the closest to the bull's eye wins and my team won. Someone nearly hit a sheep! Archery was great fun!

Dell Farm - Yum!

The best part of Dell Farm was when we melted marshmallows and sandwiched them with the chocolate cookies! Yum! I loved sitting round the campfire.

Eaton Bray Academy University Challenge!

Forget 'The University Challenge' on the television, we have had our own version of The University Challenge in school! The children in years 3, 4 and 5 had to get into teams and played rounds against each other. Our team, 'People in Black' made it to the fi nals which were held in assembly in front of the whole school. It was nerve racking but we were excited. The questions were tough, they ranged from entertainment to Science. We persevered but unfortunately we lost to the Fantastic Three! We were all awarded with certifi cates and book vouchers. It was a great experience and we are looking forward to next year!
