Wat Tyler Country Park

All of year 4 have had the annual opportunity to spend three days at the field centre at Wat Tyler Country Park, staying over night and enjoying songs around the campfire on their last evening.  Children learnt about the ecology of the park as it is now and also it's history, including the old cottage and the former dynamite factory owned by Alfred Nobel (Nobel actually started his famous peace prize in reparation for the fortune he made during his life developing and selling high explosives). Often the first chance for children to stay away from home, the visit is the basis for much of the children's work this half term.
