Tonight Y4 toured the manor house of Ufton Court, which has a fascinating history, that we learnt all about (https://uftoncourt.org.uk/ufton-s-history). We discovered some secret hiding places called priest holes, amongst other interesting facts! Ask us when we’re home.

Year 6 

We arrived at @PGLTravel Marchants Hill safely. After lunch we explored the whole of Marchants Hill orienteering where our adventures will take place this week! Beginning to get excited. Exploring dorms next.

We are all LOVING our dinner. So many choices and even a full salad bar. The reviews from the children are that the food is amazing!

Our first evening activity was “Passport to the World”. We had to explore the grounds of the main house – we were given a country and we had to locate it then answer 3 questions. “It was so much fun!”

Group 3’s first activity was “Orienteering”. They first orientated themselves with directional language  then map reading. We used our skills to follow challenges and locate different places.

All of group 3 bravely abseiled twice. Everyone was so brave and worked together brilliantly!

Group 2 are now expert “Survivors”… the did wood whittling, building a shelter and starting a fire. They’re all set for the Survivor Summer Term Topic! How long do you think they’d survive in the woods?

Group 2 working together collaborating as a team during their “Problem Solving” activity.

Faced with logs, barrels 🛢 and ropes how on early were we going to build a moving vehicle but through teamwork they took part in “Buggy Building”!

Campfire’s Burning, campfire’s burning… on Tuesday night we braved the rain and had an amazing campfire  We even got to toast marshmallows and sing songs. How lucky are we?!

We all loved warming ourselves by the campfire. It was a wonderful atmosphere!

Trying out our chess skills ♟♟ during a break from activities.

Collaborating together to pull up the giant swing! What adventure and fun.
Climbing the “Trapeze” and jumping off! What determination! Team building fun whilst learning our compass directions. Teamwork and cooperation is vital when taking part in “Jacob’s Ladder”. How many Y6 children do you think will tap the top rung?

Group 1 bring really brave and climbing up to the top before taking jump on the “Trapeze”! As soon as we found out there wasn’t 💷 or 🍬 in the ball, we weren’t so sure… but what Group 3 will do for 20 DOJOs! Fearless climbing up and jumping off on the “Trapeze”.

Pre-lunch break time! Not sure where the energy comes from!

After a morning of fun filled activities, Y6 are settling down to a delicious lunch. @PGLTravel the reviews are in and they’re loving the food!

Groups 2 and 3 are learning how to climb the wall safely. It’s so important that we listen well and follow all the instructions to be safe and have fun!

Various Photos 

Group 1 are at the Rifle Range learning to aim and shoot air rifles. With practise, we’re improving our aiming skills. We learnt vital skills about how to be safe when handling and using a rifle. We had to use our hand eye coordination to aim for the target.

Groups 1 and 4 now scaling the climbing wall!  Who do you think made it to the top?

The “Sensory Trail” is really a feat of trust and communication. We need to trust our friends to successful manoeuvre the woods and the trail.
