Across the three days they pushed themselves to the limit and faced many challenges, all of which they overcame and faced as a team.
Some of the highlights included the leap of faith where the children had to climb to the top of a pole and jump to catch a suspended trapeze.
Kayaking was also a magic moment for the children. They had to develop strength and balance to improve their paddling technique. Once they had mastered this they then applied these skills to play a variety of water based games. After all of the excitement they cooled down with a dip in the lake!
"The leap of faith was the most challenging part because you had to be athletic and have courage. I couldn't believe my eyes when I actually got up to the top!" James Sharman 5R
"I was most proud of crossing the broken bridge because I'm afraid of heights but I did it anyway." Ben Orzechowski 5C
"When I did the leap of faith I thought it was challenging to find my balance but I stretched out my arms and didn't give up" Laura Van Tilborg 5L
"I helped my team mates by moving boats and working together." Zeke Yang 5R
"We learned about team work. It was great to mix with different people and work with friends we don't normally work with." Shauna Ryan 5W and Clara Cotrim 5M
"We learned how to tie knots and build a raft. I never did that before!" Yurim Shin 5L
"When we tested our rafts I slipped into the water. Even though our raft didn't float I was really proud that most of it stayed together" Sho Shiraishi 5W
The children grew in confidence and it was wonderful to see them encourage and support each other.
A big thank you to the Indier staff, the teachers and learning assistants and the parents for all of your support.
Mr. Clayden, Year 5 Leader
