CHILDREN at Wroughton Middle School went on some exciting trips during their Fun Week recently. Pupils in years four, six and seven had residential trips to Whitwell Hall, while pupils in year five went to the Isle of Wight.

More than 100 year six and seven pupils at Whitwell camped out under the stars, and enjoyed activities such as canoeing, archery, team building, various sporting activities and building shelters, watched sheepdog trials and did clay modelling as well as a den building competition.

Meanwhile, in Sandown, on the Isle of Wight, 53 year five pupils had a non-stop week visiting attractions such as the Robin Hill Country Park and Brook Chine for some fossil hunting.

The children who remained at school were not forgotten. Year four was treated to trips to the Dinosaur Park and Carlton Marshes where they explored alternative energy using solar and wind power. Other pupils in year five went to Great Yarmouth beach for fun and games and also visited Sea Life Centre while year six and seven had a day at The Royal Norfolk Show.
