Year 4 PGL Residential 2017

Day 1 Four seasons in one day We started bright and early ready for our adventure to PGL. Parents waved us off gleefully as we bordered the coach (possible looking forward to some child-free time). The coach journey was pleasant and the children enjoyed moving through the familiar landmarks of London and out beyond to the less familiar countryside. Once we arrive we quickly saw our family of federation schools waiting for us. We soon realised that we were in for a wonderful time with our friends. After a hearty lunch, we split into our mixed federation groups. Children and adults dispersed across the site to begin the many exciting activities. We climbed, jumped, swung and abseiled like we were fearless. We cheerer on our friends and supported those who needed our support. Unfortunately the weather did not match our enthusiasm and spirit as we experienced sun, rain, hail and then back to sun again..truly four season in one day! Nevertheless and not to be defeated we continued on and showed our true determination to do what we had set out to do.... learn, have fun and make new friends. Day 2 Facing our fears! After a full breakfast we were ready to face our fears and challenge ourselves to achieve all that we can. We had a range of exciting outdoor activities to try and we were keen to get started. At the crate challenge we learned how to belay correctly. Our instructor Katie taught us a rhyme to help as remember to belay correctly. We learned that it is very important to 'lock off' so that we can help our friends to climb safely. Stacking and climbing the crates was quite tricky and we had to balance carefully. When we could climb no more, we got to swing off and kick the mountain of crates over. We thought this would be scary but as soon as we jumped it was exhilarating and felt like we were flying. Another activity we really enjoyed was 'The Giant Swing'. This is a highlight for many children and we had been told all about it from the children who went to PGL last year. The swing is quite daunting to look at. It is like a giant trapeze suspended high in the sky. You have to have a harness and be safely strapped into it before you can have a turn. Your friends have to use their muscles to pull the rope which winches you as high into the sky as you dear to go. Then you count down 3-2-1....ahhhhh! It's definitely an experience we will cherish from our primary school days.
