Our final morning

It’s our last morning of activities. We’re all packed and ready to return to our families but have an obstacle course, laser and high climbing before we leave! Looking forward to seeing you all.

Harness horror!

Today has been another fabulous day! We have took part in even more fun activities. The 3G swing was awesome, must of us got pulled to the top. We made lots of funny faces on the way down and there were plenty of screams.

The Leap of Faith was very scary it wobbled all the way up. Lots of us made it to the top and actually took the leap. All of us took part in shelter building today which tested out team building and communication skills. We now know how to build a sturdy and warm shelter.

The Scrapheap challenge was really good we worked in different teams to build a protective cover for our water balloons! we were then allowed to throw them at the adults.

The food has been delicious. Tonight we’re having a campfire.

Tonight has been great fun we tried the zip wire, 3G swing and skyline obstacle course in the dark! After another delicious birthday cake and singing to the birthday girl we’re going to get a good sleep ready for another exciting day tomorrow!

It is our first full day at Dukehouse Wood and we have been doing many activities including aeroball, zip line, archery, orienteering, Jacobs ladder, nightline, 3G swing and quad biking. Josh climbed to the top of Jacob’s ladder on his own! The food in the dining hall has been wonderful with chicken and chips and full English breakfast. We’re having so much fun.

We left school and arrived safely at Dukehouse Wood. We have made our beds. Our first activities were orienteering and archery. Archery was amazing, we were very close to the target. It was really fun! Our evening meal was delicious. We all had cake and sang to the birthday girl! We are all grateful for the opportunity to come here and to do this amazing school trip.

Bon Voyage!

Well that was Dukes House Wood. There will be more blogs appearing in the next week. The storm last night meant that the power was off today and our coach couldn’t make it up the hill, so we went for a little walk… See you all soon (think there will be lots of stories and an early night!)

Well here we are on the last day!

Last night was a little wet and noisy, most of us managed a good nights sleep and nobody wanted to get out of bed this morning!

There was a power cut in Hexham last night, so we ate breakfast in the dusk, which was fun.

Hopefully the grey clouds won’t let any more rain out this morning as we have the obstacle course and outdoor laser (was supposed to be indoor but the lack of power means no lights)

We will see you all soon!
