    DT - Making catapults

    Today children had a go at making Catapults. The children were given equipment and then a set criteria of what they could use to make it. They enjoyed this challenged and found it tricky. Well done year 4.

    Residential - Egg Drop

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    For our last activity the children were provided with an egg and told that they needed to ensure that it could survive a fall off the top of the building. The children had to work in two teams and discuss and share ideas to make something using resources provided.... And guess what? They both survived. Well done year 4.

    Residential - Tunnelling

    Today we've had to brave the darkness (and some slugs and spiders) and move around the tunnelling system here. The children had a great time moving around the tunnels and challenging themselves. Well done year 4.

    Residential - Tree Climbing

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We've had the opportunity to climb trees. Similar to a rock climbing but on trees. The children had two routes to choose from. Both were challenging and children needed to push themselves. Well done year 4.

    Residential - Team building

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We've been completing some team building skills. We completed a gutter ball challenge. The children had to move the ball from one part of the woods to another part, but only using a piece of gutter to move the ball. You were not allowed to move if you had the ball in your piece of gutter. The children did a great job and achieved their aim! Well done.
