Residential Trip to Aylmerton Field Study Centre
Aylmerton Field Study Centre, is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of rural North Norfolk.
On arrival to the centre the children engaged in a variety of ‘Woodland Activities’, including den building and different blindfold games. All activities involved developing communication skills, increasing self-confidence and team building. The unique opportunity to spend a day with marsh experts and discover the beauty and solitude of Blakeney Point was enjoyed by all. The day began with a fantastic ferry trip to see the common and grey seals at the far end of the spit. Following this we examined different habitats in an environment that few people are ever able to experience. During our Blakeney day we waded across the estuary of the River Glaven at low tide, crossed the mud flats and examined the salt marsh environment and the wildlife it supports. The children enjoyed being knee deep in mud, chilling out in the sand dunes and hunting for semi-precious stones. All children and staff also enjoyed a twilight safari, bowling, delicious food and lots of laughter! The children were extremely well behaved and displayed all of our school values during their time away.
