A day of adventure for St Joseph’s primary pupils

Adventure for St Joseph's pupils

Children in Years 3 and 4 at S. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Broadstairs had a fun day out at the Creed Outdoor Learning Centre in Teynham for their end of year treat.

The trip began with a train journey and then a short walk through open pastures looking at farm animals before arriving at Millennium Woods for their exciting day of adventure.

Led by instructors from the centre, children took part in many activities that they had never tried before including archery, high ropes, team building, bush craft with shelter building and fire laying, low ropes, obstacle course and climbing.  Tackling their fears some children set themselves personal challenges and learnt new skills.

Despite the inclement weather they all had an excellent time and enjoyed every activity with enthusiasm, energy and determination.

Year 3 teacher Shimona Sandwell said: “It’s wonderful seeing how our children have adapted to physical and problem-solving activities during our visit.  Every child has thrown themselves into each session with a smile.

“We love that they were able to experience something unique as an end of term trip and that they could bring back their personal achievements to school.”

Year 3 pupil Ted added: “It was really good.  I enjoyed the climbing wall most and I was so proud to reach the top.  It was a really great day – the best school trip ever!”

Alana from Year 4 said” “I enjoyed the rope and pole climbing activity the best – It was good fun to challenge myself.  The day was amazing fun.”
