Event - Years 4 and 5 Oaker Wood Residential

23 to 25 April 2018

This week, Year 4 and 5 went on their residential trip to Oaker Wood activity centre near Leominster.

They spent three days climbing trees, making pizzas, solving puzzles, flying through the air on zip-wires and racing through obstacle courses.

We spent our first evening around the campfire with hot-chocolate and our second evening was spent taking part in a quiz. The food was great – we had spaghetti bolognaise, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and ice lollies – and the portions were huge! After each meal we worked as a team to wash and dry all of our plates and cutlery.

Mrs Lewis, Miss Heath, Miss Bates and Mr Jackson would like to thank all of the children for their wonderful behaviour. We are so proud of them all for getting stuck into all the activities, even when we were all very cold, wet and muddy. They made us smile and cheered us on when we had a go on the activities for ourselves. They were a credit to Maney Hill School and we hope they enjoyed the experience as much as we did!

A special mention must also be made for Mr Webber and Mr Moors, who saved the day and drove all the leftover luggage to and from the campsite when they didn’t fit in the coach! We are very grateful.
