Year 7 embarked on a two-day camping staycation in mid June.
They were in great spirits on the first day, keen to get their tents up and we were impressed by how lightly they had packed! Thursday then began with a drive to Blackland Farm where the children were to take part in four activities across two days. They headed to the reservoir and the children spent time kayaking, with many of them capsizing frequently and ending up very wet! Once they had dried off, the children were to face the abseiling wall and we were very proud of them all for facing their fears and successfully completing the descent. In the evening they took part in zorbing before enjoying a BBQ whilst dancing and singing along to their favourite songs. We were amazed how quickly they all got to sleep and were well rested for another day of fun on Friday.
After breakfast, we travelled back to Blackland Farm and tackled the first activity; the gladiator challenge where the children raced each other to the top; climbing over tyres and up rope walls. Afterwards, the children got to zipwire through the forest before heading back to school. Once back at school and after packing away their tents, the children painted and gifted each other a pebble as a souvenir from the trip. A wonderful, fun-filled two days!’
