Y5 @ Broomley Grange

As part of the class end of year dojo reward, Year 5 spent the day at Broomley Grange yesterday. What an amazing experience! We started the day off with a tug of war. The children then got to further test their strength and stamina on an obstacle course. They also flew through the air on a zip wire and climbed the tress through a course of high ropes. Some of the activities were very challenging but all of the children gave it their all and some even mastered their fears! They finished the fun-filled day sliding down the slip’n’slide on a rubber ring.
