Year 5 trip to New Forest Activity Centre

The Year 5s spent three exciting, adventure-filled days with the New Forest Activities Team. After dodging a few cows and donkeys on the road, we arrived at our campsite in good spirits. 

We met Toby, our group co-ordinator, who took us on our first adventure down the Beaulieu River in canoes. We made our way down the river, meeting at various checkpoints and playing games along the way. We saw a few jellyfish but sadly didn't spot any kingfishers on our travels.

That evening, after a dinner of burgers and hotdogs (as well as some brownies to celebrate Sonny's birthday), the Year 5s played some Frisbee, cricket and a game of rounders before heading off to bed. It was rather fresh during the night, but thankfully everyone managed to get some sleep after donning an extra layer or two.

Day two involved bush crafts, archery, high ropes and low ropes. The Year 5s impressed with their excellent team work, head for heights and general positive attitude towards each of their activities. Many faced their fears and did so with much encouragement from their peers. It was so lovely to see the children all supporting and cheering for each other when conquering the high ropes. Even the teachers had a go. Some more successfully than others.

That afternoon, the rain came down. It meant an evening in the main tent with some games and a quiz. Despite the cold and the wet, the Year 5s were absolute troopers and kept their spirits high, ready for the following day which was to be the highlight for many – BATTLE ZONE.

After a hearty breakfast, we packed up the tents and headed to the Battle Zone area. There, we were split into teams and given certain missions to complete. There was some highly competitive strategic play going on (and that was just the teachers). Two hours later, and covered in mud, we had lunch and headed back to School, exhausted but happy.
