It was an extraordinary night on this year's Big Sleep Out at Bulmershe. The beautiful clear skies meant the temperature dropped below what we were expecting, with frost appearing on sleeping bags and ice on the teachers' cars in the early hours! The year 9 students who took part were extremely resilient throughout the night and a few actually managed to get some sleep out in the cold. All students were extremely supportive of each other and took part in activities, which included making cardboard shelters, crisp packet ground sheets, cooking a nutritious budget meal, writing letters home and making Trangia hot chocolates. They also read extracts and reflected on Stone Cold by Robert Swindells and painted an art piece in response to the evening.
