On February 10th 2014, Y6 visited Culmington Manor for a fun filled week of adventurous activities. We arrived after lunch and had a few minutes to settle in to the dorms.  Everyone was excited deciding who was sleeping on the top and bottom bunks!

 

We then went straight into our first activity.  The children were split into three smaller groups which were led by the experienced and friendly instructors.  We then enjoyed blind trail, BMXing and rifle shooting. The rest of the week involved scaling the climbing wall in the battering rain, clambering over the obstacle course though lakes of mud, exploring underground caves in the dark of night, trekking through fields during a night walk.  If you look at the photos you will see the amazing range of activities we experienced.

 

By the end of the week we had experienced wind, rain, hail and snow. We were kept going with the delicious food provided which included a full cooked breakfast every day!  Everyone who went, thoroughly enjoyed the week and all wanted to do it again.

 

 

Pagan, 'At first I was scared about the abseiling but it was fun when we jumped over the edge and bounced down the wall. I'd love to do it all again!'

 

Ben, 'Shooting at the rifle range, was the most exciting part of my week.  It was challenging aligning the sights and aiming at the correct place on the target.  I was proud that I was able to hit the target and I had learnt a new skill.'

 

Kyla, ' I had a great time at Manor Adventure. My favourite activity was the zip-wire.  Before I did it, I was a little anxious because it was so high and the weather was very cold, wet and windy.  However, after I had done it I was eager to have another go.'

 

Kitty, 'During blind-trail, I developed new skills.  We were blind-folded and then asked to complete an obstacle course, with no sight, being led by a peer.  Billy gave me very clear instructions that enabled me to go through the course safely and quickly.  In this activity Billy and I developed a trust that I wouldn't necessarily have done in school.'
