Glorious Painshill

On Monday 14th March 3W and 3M went to Painshill Park for the day. We felt blessed as, not only did the sun shine all day, we had the park virtually to ourselves. The morning was spent orienteering in groups which involved marking co-ordinates on a map and using compasses. Each group was given just under 2 hours to find ten flags and to answer ten questions. We were delighted to hear that all four teams achieved full marks at the end of the morning which was a first for Painshill Park!

The afternoon was spent acting out legends (sometimes blindfolded!) and playing games based on Greek myths. These took place at different venues around the park so there was never a dull moment. For the artistically inclined there was even a challenge to create a Greek god using only natural materials.

Finally, we went back to the education centre where the children worked industriously in teams to create their own Greek temples. For many this was the favourite activity of the day as it allowed their imaginations to run wild and there aren’t many children who turn down the opportunity to get muddy!

Overall it was a great day full of fun but with a large helping of learning on the side.
