Year 5 Trip to Chimgan Mountains

Year 5 enjoyed a residential trip to the Chimgan mountains.
Friday, May 11, 2018
From Tuesday the 1st until Friday the 5th of May, Year 5 enjoyed a residential trip to the Chimgan mountains.

On the first day the children enjoyed Forest School activities, such as building homes for small toys and creating tracks for each other to follow using sticks, before on the second day they undertook a 12km hike. This walk took them from the resort up to the snow of Chimgan, before heading up a different hill on the other side of the road. This was a real test for them and their energy levels were very impressive!

That night the children went star gazing, to see what constellations they could find, before on Thursday they hiked up another hill to build dens, where they ate their lunch. They finished the day with some more Forest School, such as creating maps of our resort, designing wild art and playing outdoors games, before a final night talent show. 

We returned to school after a wonderful week on the Friday morning, with some very happy and very tired children!
