Prep 5 Pupils Residential Trip to Ufton Court

21st May 19

WGS Prep 5 Pupils returned from a busy, but exciting, residential trip to Ufton Court a beautiful Elizabethan manor in the Berkshire countryside.

Following in the footsteps of Sir Francis Drake timeline from 1577 to 1580, the ‘Tudor Explorers’ joined the crew circumnavigating the world. They set sail in their galleons on a journey of discovery returning with their ships laden with new-found treasures and stolen cargo.

Pupils enjoyed orienteering around 16 acres of the beautiful grounds. They then worked as a team and had to use their communications skills to encourage and cooperate with each other as they gathered natural and man-made materials to build a shelter. Finally finishing off with a wonderful Tudor Banquet feast in the Great Barn.

The children were commended for their excellent behaviour and patience during the longer than expected coach trip back to Wisbech after such a fantastic learning experience.
