PUPILS at the Grange Community Nursery and Primary failed to let their spirits be dampened when a residential was postponed due to Covid-19.

Children had been looking forward to canoeing and climbing at Kingswood, Colomendy.

Instead year 4 explored their own school forest and took part in lots of outdoor learning linked to their science topic about living things and their habitats.

Children made cooking sticks and sat around a fire, toasting marshmallows coated in chocolate.

Pupils have fun toasting s'mores, marshmallow treats with chocolate and biscuits

During the staycation, children also played lots of team-building games, tackled outdoor adventure activities and had a movie afternoon, where they wore pyjamas and enjoyed hot chocolate and popcorn.

Head of school Sara Albiston said, "As a school of opportunity, we really didn't want our children to miss out on their inspirational trip. Therefore, we brought the trip to them. "The children had so much fun exploring our outdoor areas. We are so proud of their maturity at this turbulent time."
