5BH had a fantastic time at Ernest Cook woods. Before lunch they worked in teams of 5 or 6 to build a den from natural materials. This involved carrying lots of large branches so the children had to be shown how to carry them safely. After lunch the dens were used for a game of Capture the Flag. The children had great fun guarding their dens and going out on stealth missions to grab other teams' flags! Ellie May was the winner of the first game and Samson's team won the second round.
All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable day that helped us all to bond and work together co-operatively.
