Hindleap Warren

Year 6 have arrived safely!

Day 1 at Hindleap Warren

Pupils have been either attempting the climbing wall, the zip-wire or have been working on their team building skills. 

Day 2 at Hindleap Warren

We have been battling the cold weather and wrapping up warm to conquer the crate stack, becoming catapult pioneers and experts at archery. All pupils had a great first night which included an evening swim, games and hot chocolate before bed. Tomorrow's challenge - the forest adventure!

Day 3 at Hindleap Warren 

Very exciting start to the day - we’ve woken up to a little bit of snow! 

Day 3 has been an adventurous and muddy one!

After an an amazing forest adventure, where we waded through a river, jumped in numerous muddy puddles and climbed through thick hedges, we’ve continued to have fun on site this afternoon with the high adventure and orienteering.

Still to come is the night walk. 

Day 4 at Hindleap Warren

Our night walk around the forest was great fun last night as there was a clear sky and a full moon, so we didn't even need our torches!

Pupils are getting harder to wake up in the mornings now but we are still enjoying the different activities. Today pupils have been either map reading and orienteering, or getting muddy on the obstacle courses. Later we investigate the Witches Tree and start to build our own outdoor shelters.

 

Day 5 at Hindleap Warren

Our final activities have started this morning and all the pupils are looking forward to seeing their families again soon. Our DVD night last night was exactly what we needed after working so hard on the adventure challenges throughout the day. Pupils have visited the tuck shop and will be coming home with a few souvenirs from their week away. Every child has been amazing at facing their fears and trying their best and all the staff here are really proud of them.

We are leaving Hindleap at 1.30pm this afternoon and should be arriving back at school between 3.15pm-3.45pm depending on traffic. Please check your School Jotter app for alerts and updates. 

Lost property - we have collected a few unclaimed items and we will have these out on the school ping-pong table after we arrive back. Please can parents have a quick look and check if they belong to their child as we won't be able to hold on to the items for more than a few days.
