A terribly thick fog hung over the Quantocks today, making visibility too poor for us to run our Den Day up at Dead Woman's Ditch. Instead of being dismayed we held it at Crowcombe School, with plans to rearrange our hill visit for later in the term - Two WOW days for the price of one!
So, despite continuous drizzle and ever rising levels of mud and water, the children worked in 'tribes' to create banners and pennants, forest headbands, and tarpaulin shelters; they hunted out keys to unlock a treasure chest; and they got proper dirty by 'mud-mapping' imaginary settlements!
As a staff we are ever astounded by the positivity, empathy and robustness of our children - not one complaint was made today about the damp or about other children. They really looked after each other and worked together to turn this 'Plan B' day into an A-Grade success!
Thank you to all the staff and parents who helped make today run so smoothly, from the early morning support setting up, to the donation of hot chocolate and cake to round the event off. These seemingly small actions add up to make this school a great place to work and learn.
