On Wednesday 30th September Year 4 set off for their three-day adventure to High Ashurst. Although it was a little cold and wet, the mood was one of excitement! The focus of day one was very much on communication and teamwork.
The children followed the instructions quickly and worked well as a team, which really impressed our instructors! During the afternoon the children turned their hand to orienteering and archery. Orienteering was such a hit with the children, that they were keen to do more once back at school!
Day two saw a significant improvement in the weather, which was just as well as this was the day that we were going to tackle the high ropes! However, before the high ropes the children were in the woods making amazing dens and starting camp fires to keep warm. After lunch it was time to take on the high ropes. All of the Children, without exception went out of their comfort zone during this exercise. Each and every one pushed themselves to try and go further, or go higher. It was a joy to watch them!
During the morning of day three we tackled more team building tasks which included blindfolds, an assault course and finally navigating through a spider’s web! After lunch we turned to the climbing wall. Once again, the children tackled this activity with real energy and commitment. Each and every one of them set themselves a target, and each and every one of the children bettered their target!
The children should feel incredibly proud of themselves. They conducted themselves commendably while we were at High Ashurst and really pushed themselves outside of their comfort zones. Thank you to all our instructors from High Ashurst who were absolutely brilliant across all three days!
