YEAR 5  children from Glenfrome Primary School went on an exciting night walk to the woods on Purdown on a clear and frosty night in January. 

 They had to navigate some slippery slopes, deep ditches and a lot of branches.  The skies were clear so they got to view Venus as well as many stars which link in with their current topic which is to learn and understand the solar system.  They also tried their best to be still and listen for any nocturnal animals.

 Head teacher Inger O’Callaghan said:  "Glenfrome Primary School sits opposite the entrance to South Purdown and our staff plan a range of exciting activities using our extensive school grounds and unique location to ensure the children have a really rich learning experience."
