The Year 5 pupils from Park Lane Primary and Nursery School challenged themselves with a variety of activities, including the high ropes, climbing wall, vertical challenge and abseiling.

In the evenings, there were wacky races and other games. On the final night, everyone gathered around the camp fire and enjoyed singing songs.

Sarah Gregory, Year 5 teacher at Park Lane, said: “It has been a real privilege to see the children’s confidence in their own ability grow over the week; as well as being able to celebrate real personal success with both individuals and groups.

“It was a very worthwhile experience for pupils and staff alike.”
