Year 4 - Harrow House Visit

In May, Year 4 went on their annual adventure to Harrow House in Swanage. When we arrived we had fun the beach, making large sand dinosaurs. After covering ourselves in sand, we traipsed back to Harrow House and had some free time in our rooms before a delicious dinner. There was so much to choose from and many of us had seconds and thirds.  Once our dinner had settled, we had a pool party. In the pool there were lots of different floats, balls and goals so we could play water football. 

The next day we woke to a slightly cloudy day; at least it wasn’t raining! After gobbling a massive breakfast, we walked the short distance to the train station where we waited for our steam train to take us to Corfe Castle. Whilst we waited, a lovely volunteer named Peter told us all about the Railway and how it is maintained.

At the castle we had brilliant fun on ‘Taylor Tours’, Mr Taylor really is a brilliant tour guide and he told us so much about the history! Half the group sat in the grounds of the castle and sketched the ruins. Jasmine’s sketch was great and very accurate.

In the afternoon we returned to the beach where we played games and skimmed stones. We then returned to Harrow House.

After dinner it was time for the disco! DJ Thorner and Tuck played lots of recent pop and we did some fabulous dancing. Mr Diamond was amazing at doing the worm! The children that didn’t want to take part in the disco sketched outside!

On the last day we were really lucky to have a visitor from the Jurassic Coast, Simon Penn. Simon told us all about the dinosaurs found on the Jurassic Coast and showed us some of the fossils he had found. We then went down to the beach and learnt about the geography of the land, sea defences and erosion.

The trip was brilliant and everyone, including the teachers had a great time!
