Last week children from years 4 and 5 had a fantastic time at Heatree. We started the trip with a scramble up Hounds Tor before arriving at Heatree. Our first afternoon saw the children defeat the evil pirates and save the Tamakale bird by completing a series of team challenges. The evening was spent settling into rooms and learning about Britain’s history by spending time in the roundhouse.
After an early start (not too early!), we split into groups for Wilderness Venture. This involved building dens and using Kelly kettles to make hot chocolate before exploring the moor and playing sardines. After lunch, we took part in Low Adventure where team work skills were necessary to complete a number of tasks. These tasks also included vast quantities of mud so a wallow in a stream was needed to wash off!
On Friday the children took part in their final activity. During High Ropes, they were up in the trees doing tight rope walks, building crate towers and being koala bears! Hats off to those children who even went upside down at times!
