Year 3 Stanley Park Trip
On Wednesday 29th June, Year 3 spent an amazing day at Stanley Park and the Outdoor Revolution climbing, low ropes and caving facilities. After a brief coach trip to Stanley Park, the children were quickly fitted with harnesses and helmets to tackle one of two challenges – the low ropes obstacle course raised 15 feet in the air or the ‘mole hole’ caving system of underground tunnels.
The rain managed to hold off and the children showed amazing bravery, courage and resilience when tackling the challenges. There were some excellent individual efforts where children made the obstacle course look easy and there were several touching moments of kindness and encouragement towards other children. This was commented on by the instructing staff who said the children were ‘a pleasure to work with and showed amazing resilience throughout the morning’.
Following the action-packed and adrenaline-filled morning, we managed to hide in Blackpool Sports Centre through lunch time while it rained heavily to have our picnic in comfort. Following this, we braved the rain and spent some time on the park. As you can see from the pictures, the children had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed playing on the excellent facilities. One of the highlights of the day was undoubtedly our class dodgeball game, where the children managed to beat the staff members several times to be crowned dodgeball champions!
Well done Year 3 – not only did all our school staff comment on your excellent behaviour and efforts throughout the day, but instructors and members of the public did so also. What excellent ambassadors for our school!
