Tower Wood 2021
Between the 4th and 8th October, our Year 6 children will be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime… They’ll be spending the week at Tower Wood.
We’ve got lots of different activities lined up and the food promises to be absolutely fantastic as ever!
Whilst we obviously want the children to have fun, we also want them to learn while we are at Tower Wood. We have given the instructors a list of things we would like everyone to develop:
- To become more independent, taking responsibility for our own organisation and actions.
- To develop a sense of resilience – keeping going even when things may seem tough or too hard
- To take ‘safe’ risks when we might not know what will happen
- To step outside of our comfort zones and challenge ourselves to do new or harder things.
Check out the updates and the photos below.
Monday 4th October
A wonderful first day at Tower Wood draws to a close. After the coach journey, the children met their instructors and spent time exploring their new home for the week. Once bags were unpacked, beds were made and instructors had given the children a brief tour, we had lunch and prepared for an afternoon of activities.
In our afternoon session, team work, communication and perseverance were key. The children faced a series of group challenges and problem solving challenges in their 4 activity groups. The children worked as a team and had to refine their strategy and communicate effectively during ‘gutter ball’, where they negotiated a tennis ball down a series of gutters to a distant target. When faced with a 9 foot wall that the whole team had to get over, it was great seeing the strength and strategy on show. The children later had to persevere and keep going in the rain when finding orienteering controls hidden in the woods. Staff and instructors were very impressed how quickly the children picked up how to read a key and orientate a map effectively. Afternoon activities were rounded off with a trip to the low ropes – a low level obstacle course where the children had to work together to navigate and travel around safely. This was no easy feat given how slippy the equipment was!
Our evening meal was most welcomed, and the children devoured the curry and sponge pudding which was on offer! Our evening has been rounded off by playing manhunt around the grounds of Tower Wood, enjoying hot chocolate, cookies and a film as well as playing several rounds of hide and seek inside the house before bed.
Tuesday 5th October
If you saw the weather forecast for today, you knew a wet and windy day was in store – but we didn’t let that stop us! After a full English breakfast and as much cereal as the children could eat, the groups met with their instructors to prepare for the day ahead and pack appropriately! It has to be said, the children did a great job organising their kit and clothing and gave us adults quite the surprise!
Three of our four groups headed out in the minibuses in the direction of Coniston, to visit the incredible quarries and mines at Little Langdale. Cathedral Quarry, aptly named due to the enormous hole in the roof looking out on to the nearby hillsides which perfectly resembles a stained-glass window, is a labyrinth of tunnels and passage ways deep underground. The children from Mr. Sharrock’s, Mrs. Spacey’s and Miss Stedman’s groups all showed amazing perseverance walking to and navigating the many tunnels, especially given the weather. We were also really impressed with the children’s bravery and how supportive they were of each other when asked to find their way out of the pitch-black mines without a torch. Mr Sharrock’s and Mrs Spacey’s groups both ended the day ghyll scrambling up Tilberthwaite Ghyll. Again, the children showed tremendous bravery and teamwork helping each other climb upstream over rocks, rapids and waterfalls. Mr. Wylde’s group remained on site at Tower Wwood for the day, spending the morning on Windermere, kayaking and completing team challenges on the giant paddleboard. As if it was not wet enough with the weather, many of the children found their way into the water at the hands of one challenge or another! Mr. Wylde’s group then spent the afternoon climbing on site, where they showed excellent resilience in order to better their climbing skills time after time.
After an evening meal of burgers, chips and apple turnovers, we have decided to have an indoor evening in a bid to let our waterproofs, shoes and equipment dry out in the drying room overnight. The children will have a choice of two films, before playing hide and seek around the house, having our hot chocolate and supper and reading out more embarrassing parent messages.
Wednesday 6th October
Today has been another wonderful day at Tower Wood. The sun was shining when we woke up and it stayed out all day! All four groups have done the same activities today, just in different orders.
Today was our Adventure Day. This activity is designed to really push the children’s personal resilience – the hills in the Lake District are big and our lake journey is long. That being said, all of the children have canoed from Tower Wood all the way to the bottom of the Windermere (or the other way round) which is about 3 miles. They have also summited a ‘mountain’ – Gummers How. It was wonderful to hear the children shouting from the top, “I’m on top of the world.”
As you can see from the photos, the views from the top of the ‘mountain’ were incredibly and we sincerely hope this will foster a love of walking and the outdoors that lasts for the rest of their lives.
When we returned to Tower Wood, we had sausage, mash and sweetcorn for tea followed by trifle – minus the alcohol.
This evening we have toasted marshmallows on a campfire, played Manhunt in the woods as well our daily supper of hot chocolate and a cookie.
Every year, by Wednesday we find the children are all shattered and so we’ve had an early (ish) night. Everyone was in bed and asleep by 10:00pm!
The children have loved the messages from the parents – thank you to everyone who has sent them. Please don’t worry if you are struggling to find some photos of your child, we do have more but unfortunately the WiFi here at Tower Wood is very slow and uploading all of the photos takes hours. We’re doing our best to get as many as possible online.
Thursday 7th October
As today was our last full day of activities we’ve definitely made the most of it. Mr. Wylde’s group have been to Cathedral Quarry and spent some time in the caves. They learned about how the miners made the holes in the slate and then packed gunpowder into them before using a charge to create a big explosion so the slate could be processed and then sold. They also spent time in the caves and found out that if you snap a polo in complete darkness, it actually emits a tiny flash of light.
The other three groups have stayed at Tower Wood and been kayaking, on the tree climbs and had a go at the Leap of Faith. All of these activities give the children the opportunity to work as a team but also push themselves to be resilient and keep going, even if they are scared.
We’ve experienced a lot of liquid sunshine today however with our waterproofs and boots on we haven’t let that phase us in the slightest.
We’ve had another wonderful meal of spaghetti bolognese followed by apple crumble and ice cream! Mr. Wylde is convinced he’s put on a stone whilst he’s been here!
This evening we’ll be playing Headhunters before embarking on the Herculean task of packing 32 children’s suitcases to return home tomorrow afternoon.
Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to today.
Friday 8th October
Well we’re on our way home from Tower Wood. The coach is significantly quieter than it was on Monday morning.
We have had an excellent week and made plenty of memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
Today, all of the groups were tasked with creating a floating craft from a few pieces of timber, barrels and some rope. After our instructors taught us some basic knots we got to work on designing and building our craft. Surprisingly, each groups raft floated and didn’t sink when the group piled on.
Tim, one of our instructors led us in some challenges – the first being paddling in a straight line.
After a good paddle around we packed the rafts away and then came the moment we’d all been waiting for… jumping in the lake and having a swim. As you can see from the photos we very much enjoyed this and we loved that Mr. Sharrock joined in too.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to our families for enabling us to come to Tower Wood. We have really enjoyed ourselves; learned lots of new skills as well as growing in confidence. Likewise, we’d like to thank Mrs. Spacey, Miss Stedman, Mr. Sharrock and Mr. Wylde for taking us. They have all worked incredibly hard to give us a great experience and have not stopped once – anyone who thinks taking children to Tower Wood is wrong, it isn’t!
We hope you enjoy looking at the 600 photos that have been taken this week!
Thankyou to all the staff, Ben has had the best week. Very tired now though. You all deserve a medal. Thank you so much. Enjoy your weekend and relax with a beer. The Harrison family
