Robinwood 2019

Class: Year 6 Year: 2018 - 2019

We've arrived and are ready for an adventure and a very long walk to the castle!  

First Day: We split into our groups and completed 'The Quest', the dreaded Giant Swing, hit the target in Archery and even faced the infamous Piranha Pool! Even after all that, we then completed the team challenge, where the children easily defeated Miss Finch, Miss Smith and Mrs Smith in an evening of puzzles and quizzes led by our wonderful team leaders Courtenay and Ben. We ended the evening with a hot chocolate and by singing Happy Birthday to today's Birthday Boy, Harry!

Second Day: What a busy day we've had! We woke up early and climbed the dizzy heights of the climbing wall before scrambling through Robinwood's very own caves - playing hide and seek everywhere we could. Next up was the zipline where we got to cruise through the tree tops, followed by a blindfolded Nightline challenge where our teamwork was really tested and we certainly had to battle those pesky squirrels. The Crate Challenge was next and we got to show our skills and take some risks before braving the leap of faith to face the trapeze. We ended the evening with a dance, some quizzes and games and tried to be crowned the ultimate team. Today we all faced things that we thought we couldn't do and we faced the challenge and actually completed every aspect. Well done Year 6! 

Third Day: Our final day started nice and early out on the lake and in the canoes - we certainly impressed our instructors with our skills (especially Stream team). Next we showed our skills in raft building, creating our own rafts and seeing how far we could get them! Our final activity was the dreaded Dungeon where we had to solve puzzles to escape. Finally, after lunch we celebrated today's birthday boy, Joseph, with a sing song and some delicious cake! Then it was time to head home.

What an absolutely incredible 3 days!! Well done all Year 6's - you have been so fantastic!
