Welcome to Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School
Year 3 went to Great Finborough Activity Centre for the day on Tuesday 12 May. All the children had a go at Archery where they learnt to use a bow and arrow correctly and safely and how to aim accurately at a target. The children also tried Crate Stacking where they worked with a partner to climb up stacked crates, using balance and confidence to keep climbing higher even when the stack was wobbling and feeling like it was going to topple over! When the stack did finally fall over the children all said their favourite part was hanging in the trees before being carefully lowered to the floor! Finally they took part in Den Building in the forest, collecting appropriate materials and learning how to build a safe den successfully. They were also taught how to use a hand saw safely to collect materials for their den.
All the children had such a good time and greatly enjoyed their new experiences. They had to use skills such as team work, compromise, sharing, determination, patience and perseverance. They gained confidence in trying new activities they had never tried before and had a lot of fun at the same time!
