Haven Banks Trip

 

On 8th and 9th July our Oak Class went to Haven Banks. They had an amazing time – have a look below!

On Thursday morning we perfected our rowing skills during Dragon Boat racing. Lots of us got to have a go at beating the drum at a steady speed. In the afternoon we went solo as we paddled our own kayaks. Despite a torrential downpour as we set off, we had great fun learning how to paddle and steer and playing games on the river. A couple of us ended up in the water but there were lots of smiles all round.

On Friday we took a peaceful journey down the river in our canoes. This became slightly more frantic once we had to swap canoes during our game and on Friday afternoon we built rafts using barrels, strong rope and tying different knots. We then raced each other on the river although most of us ended up in it at the end.

 

We had great fun jumping in the river at the end of each day, even Mrs Jeffery had a go!
