Year 4 at Woodrow

Year 4 Woodrow High House Residential Visit 20th-22nd March 2019


Year 4 had an action-packed few days (and nights!) out in the wilds at Woodrow in Amersham.


The children all threw themselves, some literally, into the activities on offer which included: Shelter building, Pioneering (designing and building a trebuchet), Team building (such as transporting a ball over a distance using lengths of guttering), swimming, team games in the sports hall, Bush craft (building a fire from scratch), Nightline (manoeuvring through muddy obstacles whilst blindfolded), Challenge Course (think army- cargo nets, tunnels, monkey bars etc) and a scenic Woodland Walk.


This, in turn, developed their skills of independence, self-reliance, trust, problem-solving and team work. These skills were really put to the test when the children had to make their beds with FLAT SHEETS and duvet covers!


Moreover, when having complete control over exactly WHAT they ate… “Three pieces of toast or four?”, proving to be a particular dilemma!


A huge thank you to: Woodrow Instructors, the Year 4 Team, Mr Kaye, Mrs Hemsworth and Mr Tang for making the visit such a success.
