Pioneer Centre – Day 1

Today Year 4 set off on our eagerly awaited residential to the Pioneer Centre. When we arrived we were welcomed by the fantastic staff who showed us to our lodge. Each group was given a tour of the facilities and shown the different activities which they would be completing. We were soon split into our groups and were heading towards our first session (Archery, Raft building, High ropes & Climbing). All the children performed brilliantly and were full of energy and demonstrated teamwork and problem solving skills. This was then followed by another activity before heading off for our tea.

In the evening, we gathered around the crackling fire and sang campfire songs which we’re sure you’ll hear upon our return. A number of children and Mr Stanton even took part in the good old pioneer tradition of Speed banana eating!
After showers, we settled down to a drink and biscuit before making our way to bed after an exhausting first day.
