Day 4 Oaker Wood (Thursday)

Today saw us tackling most of the adrenaline high rope activities: crate stacking, the quick jump challenge, zip wire, monkey climb and the gladiator obstacle.

Some groups also enjoyed shooting pistols, rifles and crossbows down at the shooting range.

This evening, the children had a fish & chip dinner followed by the ‘Tewkesbury C of E Talent Show.’ Talents included: breakdancing, singing/rapping, TikTok dances and magic tricks!



Oaker Wood Residential- Day 3 (Wednesday)

It’s been another sunny day here at Oaker Wood. Today, the children have enjoyed a session at Wild Camp where they went on a nature scavenger hunt and were tasked with building waterproof dens. During the waterproof testing, the children got a little wet! Whilst at the camp, they also enjoyed toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate.


Other activities today have included: target shooting, crate stacking, krypton woodland (team building games) and, one of the most anticipated activities, the Leap of Faith.We are incredibly proud of how the children have pushed themselves today and shown resilience, bravery and teamwork skills.

This evening, we had a camp fire, making smores and roasting even more marshmallows! The evening also included a spontaneous water fight where Miss Davis & Mr Rylatt were thoroughly soaked- see the photo below of Mr Rylatt roasting his shoe to help it dry!


Year 6 Oaker Wood Visit- Day 2 (Tuesday)

We have had yet another excellent day at Oaker Wood. The children woke up very cheery and ready to enjoy the day’s activities. Today, the children have enjoyed 3 activities: Paintballing, Pizza making & Capture the Flag.

Paintball was an exhilarating activity and the children experienced 3 different games. Although they were keen to hit the staff, they couldn’t identify us with all our gear on!

We finished the night with a chip shop delivery, camp fire and lots of fun games!

This afternoon, the children have also enjoyed the low ropes course and working as a team to tackle some challenging tasks!
