Y5 Wilderness Camp Experience

Earlier this week, Y5 had the fantastic opportunity of camping out on school grounds overnight, organised with Wilderness Outdoor Education who we had our Y3 and Y4 residentials with.  The children got changed into old clothes after school on Monday and then found their tent and prepared their rooms – this included following instructions to put their own beds up and making up their beds with pillows and sleeping bags.  This was followed by a delicious BBQ of hot dogs and burgers.  Free time followed this where the children could play football, play on the equipment and enjoy some freedom.  Hot chocolate finished off the night which most children fast asleep by 11pm!  The next day brought beautiful weather with it and the children had breakfast and then dived straight in to some bushskills activities.  We had den making, water filtration and fire starting throughout the day.  By the end of the day the children were shattered and ready for a shower!

A HUGE thank you to Mr White for giving up his evening and camping out with the children. Thanks also to Wilderness Outdoor Education who managed the whole event – the leaders were awesome and the children had an amazing time.
