Year 4 School Journey

Day 1

The children were split into two groups and headed off for their challenges. Groups 1 and 2 headed to the hive for team challenges and worked collaboratively and showed extremely good resilience despite the wet weather conditions. Groups 3 and 4 scaled new heights on the climbing wall and high ropes activities -pushing themselves to overcome fears of the heights and trying new skills. The evening activity was a trip to the barn to play air hockey, table tennis, pool or to show off their dance moves!

Day 2

Groups 1 and 2 headed to the woods to escape from the zombie apocalypse (you may be given the zombie test when the children come home) the children built shelters in the wood, cooked bread on the campfire and tried there hands at making sparks which would help them if they were really surviving in the wild! Group 3 and 4 had a low rope course where team skills and trust played an important part. They also tried their hands at archery and we have some great budding archers.

After lunch group 1 and 2 had their turn at scaling the dizzy heights of the wall- every child challenges themselves and showed such determination – even Miss Ali conquered her fears- although her shrieks on the high beam could be heard across the forest! Groups 3 and 4 headed to the hive for their turn trying to complete their team challenges, the easier looking ones proved to be the trickiest but all the children worked brilliantly together and pulled together to complete the tasks.

Our evening activity saw the children playing out on the field – it was great to see them all make use of the area and make their own games up – or challenge Mr Clifford to a football match.

Day 3

Our final day will see groups 1 and 2 head to the low ropes and archery sessions and groups 3 and 4 will have to survive in the woods.

We will update school of our departure time and they will send out the relevant information as to our arrival.
