Over three half days Year 5 had the opportunity to visit the amazing water sports and outdoor centre at Astbury Mere.
Day 1 – The children got the chance to paddle-board, kayak and canoe onto the lake, each activity requiring a particular challenge. We even had a few visitors who wanted to explore, they were a little quackers.
Day 2 – Year 5 were given the opportunity to build their own raft which would then be cast onto the lake. With a little help from one another all the class were able to set sail, however, not all were able to stay aboard.
Day 3 – Leaving their sea legs behind the children explored the world of ‘bush-craft’. Orienteering and fire building were today’s missions, as well as a cheeky toasted marshmallow.
