Year 5 Discovery Day

On Monday 19th September, Year 5 set off to climb some mountains. Well, we didn't quite go to the mountains but we did a lot of climbing for our Discovery Day adventure.

The aim was to confront our fears, help each other and gain inner confidence. Did we succeed? Oh yes. The walls were high, 15 metres being the summit. Even with a safety harness on, looking down from that height was a frightening spectacle. Moreover, the physical effort was demanding as we had to haul ourselves upwards, looking for the right foothold whilst wrapping our fingers around the walls' artificial stone work. Having reached the top, we allowed gravity to take over as we gently descended to terra firma with the help of ropes and the professional instructors who  belayed us to safety.

After lunch, a variety of team work activities were laid on for us in the park. First we had to escape the clutches of a skipping rope, then we needed to hold hands in order to pass a hoop around the circle which was formed by our clasped hands before we packed up and went home.

A great day was had by all. Thanks to all involved. 

Onwards and upwards
