As an end of year reward trip, UKS2 spent the day at Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage. The weather wasn’t very kind…its was windy and raining…in fact during lunch time it poured down with rain. But the sun did shine occasionally, and we still had lots of fun!
At the start of the day…enthusiastic, happy and DRY children!
Our first activity was the ‘High Ropes Course’. The children were all issued with safety helmets and harnesses.
Our second activity was canoeing. We all put on our buoyancy aids and picked up an oar. It was quite windy so it was decided that there should be 3 of us in each canoe…even so, some of still struggled to get away from the ‘dock’ and out on the lake!
Only one canoe capsized! But somehow we all got a little bit wet…maybe we were splashing each other???
Once they were safely on the lake, we attempted to board our vessels…
They didn’t quite sink…but they weren’t ‘sea worthy’!
Somehow we all ended up in the lake!
We got absolutely drenched…but it was great fun!
