Year 5 Bushcraft Trip – Sept 2017

On Monday 18th September, Year 5 went to Cornbury Park for a 3 day residential Bushcraft adventure. We set off at 9.00 that morning, it was a 2 hour trip. When we arrived the staff that were going to be with us for a few days showed us everything we needed to know about the camp. We had a man called Will and a woman called Chloe who were going to be with us for the next 3 days. We were going to sleep in bell tents or shelters. We did lots of really fun activities, in the evening we had a glass of hot chocolate and a brownie, and we would sing songs and say riddles around the campfire. We hardly slept a wink!! Then the next day we would get lovely breakfast.  On the first morning we had a fully cooked English breakfast and then the rest of the day we did activities in our tribes and a swim in the freezing cold lake.  Then we made the survival bracelets, watched Topsy and Edward eat the fish eyes, and play games like predator or sniper.  In the evening we saw a fox. He stayed with us a long time, he was beautiful but because of the fox we were not allowed to sleep in the shelters that night. I really enjoyed Bushcraft because all the staff were really nice to us all and it was a great experience. I did lots of things out of my comfort zone and I will always remember how much fun I had and I will never forget the trip. On behalf of all of Year 5, I would like to thank Mr Fothergill and Mrs Manship for taking us.
