Form 4 have had a fantastic start to their residential trip to Danbury Outdoors. The children arrived at midday and enjoyed settling into their rooms. They even learnt how to put pillowcases on! They enjoyed a lovely school packed lunch outside on the grassed area followed by ball games.
After lunch, one group conquered their fears by going up the vertical obstacle course whilst the other group went mountain biking in the forest. The children were so encouraging to each other and helped each other to achieve things they thought they couldn’t do.
They are looking forward to dinner, hot chocolate and cabin time later on.
The children are raring to go this morning. After a delicious breakfast of bacon baguettes, pain au chocolat, toast, yoghurt and a selection of fruit the children then had some free time playing football and games outside on the green before they started their activities for the morning. Today, they have zip wiring and an obstacle course in the forest. The obstacle course in the forest was brilliant fun. First, the children had to negotiate a rope bridge over a ditch followed by balance beans and black tunnels to pull themselves up onto a ledge. The children then had monkey bars which after all the practice at school on the fitness trail, they were amazing at! The ‘ over over’ logs were a particular challenge whereby the children had to climb over steeper and steeper logs without falling over!
