On Friday 12th November Year 4 had a fun packed activity day at Go Ape and Moors Valley Country Park.
We all took part in the Go Ape Tree Top Challenge high up in the trees. Kitted out and wearing a safety harnesses we maneuvered over swinging planks, rope bridges and down high speed zip wires.
Jack said, “The tree top trail at the country park was so fun being high in the sky.”
The adults were so impressed by the bravery displayed and the ‘no fear’ approach to tasks by our children. Pupils applauded and cheered each other on when they could see their friends overcome fears of the high zip wire and then triumph, when they reached the ground. It was wonderful to see the children help, support and encourage their friends along the various obstacles.
Lots of children commented about how supportive their classmates had been, “My friends were really kind to me and encouraged me.”
After a picnic lunch we walked around the forest discovering play structures en route. We went high into the sky on a tree top walk and we also explored an open air art gallery with images of the environment from around the world.
Before we left we were given an interesting talk about life saving and safety on the beach from the Royal Lifeboat Society and then were able to visit the shop.
The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with, “It was amazing”, and “I really enjoyed the play trail” ringing out.
Sherborne House teachers were so impressed with Year 4’s excellent behaviour on the day and the wonderful way the children supported each other (and the staff) on the challenges.
