Dukes Barn 2018
We have had a very enjoyable time at Dukes Barn this year, the weather was glorious and the activities challenging but manageable.
In total 17 of our year 5 and 6 children went and were joined by 27 pupils from Fir Ends School. Some great friendships were made.
During our time here we experienced climbing; weasling (squeezing between rocks); stream scrambling; canoeing on Emperor Lake; caving in Carlwark, Devonshire or Bolsworth; ropes course and indoor climbing and an enjoyable walk to Chatsworth Farm Park where we saw lots of different animals and played in the adventure playground.
The pictures show the five groups in action, Badgers, Rabbits, Owls, Hedgehogs and Foxes. Each group got to do all of the activities over the duration of the week.
I am positive the children learnt a lot about themselves,; how to deal with fear and overcome it; making new friends and managing to organise themselves for the different activities and beinng in the right place at the right time!
