Blue Class residential visit to Aylmerton 2018

Blue Class have recently returned from their residential trip at the Aylmerton centre in Norfolk. Although the weather was not always kind to us, we had amazing time.

On arrival, we quickly viewed our accommodation and dorms, and ate our packed lunches before heading off to Cromer. We visited the museum to learn about the lives of local fishermen and their families and discover more about local rocks and fossils including the West Runton elephant.

We then explored the pier and spent a short time investigating the beach. Later after a delicious dinner, we set off on our twilight safari to experience the clear starry constellations and nocturnal wildlife.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our second day was “pirate activities” and we headed off for physical and team challenges including climbing walls, low ropes and zip wires. We certainly were challenged by the weather too! However, after a change of clothing and another warming meal, we enjoyed some fun and entertainment at the ten-pin bowling centre.

The sun was shining on the morning of our last day. We were excited as we were going on a boat trip over to Blakeney point.  We explored the sand dunes and looked for wildlife. After a picnic lunch, we boarded the boat again and went in search of the seals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were lucky enough to see many on the beach including one swimming near our boat. Later we disembarked at Morston, then walked along the coast path to Blakeney village. After a short time, exploring Blakeney and saying our “Goodbyes and Thank yous” to the leaders from the Aylmerton centre, it was time to catch the coach home.  Well done to Year 3 and 4, you were a pleasure to be with and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time in Norfolk.
