Year 5 Trip to Gilwell

On Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October, our Year 5 children headed off to Gilwell Scout Camp for a couple of days of outdoor learning. They really enjoyed sharing rooms with their friends and taking part in exciting activities such as crate stacking, bouldering, zip wire, pedal go-carts and wobbly pole. 

The children spent time playing outdoor games and exploring the woods, identifying trees and looking for hidden secrets. Some even created their own woodland person from the natural materials they found. Some children were a little nervous about taking part, but everyone challenged themselves to overcome their fears, showing our values of resilience and courage as well as fantastic teamwork and responsibility. Despite a little rain, the children had a fantastic time and enjoyed taking part in activities they may not have tried before.
