Year 5 at the South Downs YHA

19th May 2014

Excitement buzzed on the 24th of April as South Malling’s eager year 5’s went on a one night trip away to Southease Youth Hostel. At Southease they had experiments by the river Ouse, learnt how to use a compass, they even went up the South Downs. The trip helped build the children’s confidence, independence and teamwork skills. Every child who stayed there found the trip incredibly enjoyable; the beds were cosy, the food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly. It ended all too quickly for some “I want to do the whole thing again!” exclaimed Sammi-Dee from the Emerald Elephants.
