We'll meet again...... See you in Year 6! 2

We had an amazing time at Bushcraft, near Knebworth. On the first day we learnt to make fires and cooked our lunch on the fires that we had made. We were put in three tribes: Woodland Creatures, Tree Kangaroos and Three Lions. Each tribe made a shelter.

We were taught first aid skills on Tuesday and had to put them to the test when we discovered our teachers in a plane crash in the woods. We carried them away from danger and performed first aid on them. They all survived…. We also made bush bracelets with special cord and learnt how to use knives safely.

Some of us slept out under our shelters on the second night. We were very warm and most slept better than in the tents the night before.

On the last day we were taught how to tie knots and make animal traps. We put our skills into practice by trapping Miss Shepherd, Mr Grosvenor and Mrs Tawse! At the end the Bushcraft champions were announced: Tree Kangaroos!

Thank you to the amazing Bushcraft team who looked after us so well.

Both Year 5 classes had a very interesting talk from Bill. He was part of a Bomber crew in World War 2 and described what flying was like and the living conditions in the RAF. We asked loads of questions!
DIG FOR VICTORY! All Year 5 went to the allotments to start getting the beds ready. We spent the afternoon weeding, looking at the other allotments for ideas and discovering the minibeasts living in the beds. We also dug up some rather interesting vegetables!
