New Year 7 students at De Aston School braved the damp weather and camped out on the school field.

The event was organised by Mrs Davies, Head of Year 7, as an opportunity for the students to get to know each other outside the classroom, particularly as the students come from a variety of different primary schools and backgrounds.

The eager campers put up their tents after their lessons for the day had finished and enjoyed playing giant garden games and other team games before devouring jacket potatoes and pasta bolognese for their evening meal.

Then it was time for a film and hot chocolate before settling into their tents for the night.
