Year 4 – Memories of Heatree
Today has been an awesome but VERY muddy day! Orange and Yellow groups spent the morning on the low adventure course, which included mud and river walks. The mud was so deep that some of us lost our shoes!! Fortunately, all shoes were retrieved and we all managed to safely complete the course. The smiles in the photos tell you just how much fun we’ve had!
Wow! What a day. It is safe to say all the children of Group 4 and 5 enjoyed themselves today taking on low adventure and Tamakele Island.
The theme for the morning was mud, mud and more mud with the children getting stuck into bogs and wading through rivers. The afternoon was based around teamwork and how to achieve success in different challenges.
Here are a few snaps of the day!
Today the year 4 green team spent the afternoon tackling the low adventure course. We swung from ropes, crossed wooden planks, scrambled through tunnels and crawled through muddy bogs. We all got very muddy but enjoyed every second.
We have spent the morning travelling back in time to the Bronze Age and the afternoon crawling around in the mud. ‘This has been the best day ever!’ said one of the group. Our wellies are full of water and our trousers are caked in mud – a truly great day!
After our first night’s sleep, we are all fed and ready for the day ahead! Some of us are heading for the Bronze Age Roundhouse and others are going to tackle the Low ropes course.
We’ll let you know how we get on!
PS – it snowed last night!
Day 1 is complete!
The children had a great day getting to know their surroundings at Heatree. They have all completed their first activity and enjoyed every minute.
In the evening, the children had fish and chips for dinner and then braved the elements to go and tell jokes and show off their talents around a campfire!
The children are now up and raring to go for Day 2, where they were greeted by snow out on the fields.
Here are some photos of the first day
Here is a picture of the very enthusiastic first night washer uppers!
Rob came in to school today to talk about the residential to Heatree.
He mentioned the website and some videos that showcase some of the activities they do.
