Each year, the year 6 children have the opportunity to spend a week at Whitemoor lakes as a treat for all of their hard over the course of their time at Brixworth Primary. This residential trip gives them the chance to experience many outdoor activities such as a zip wire, abseiling and the leap of faith and also live life a little more independently for the week.
On Monday 19th June, we left for Whitemoor Lakes which I can say was truly one of the best experiences of my life. The first activity I did was sailing which is definitely one of my highlights of the week. I fell in so many times and everyone ended up getting soaked. We did a few more activities that day and then we had dinner. It was chilli con carne and I really liked it. Then on Tuesday my first activity was giant stand up paddle boarding. It was amazing and a very memorable experience. Everyone was falling in and pushing everyone in. Our instructor Ollie was so nice and really funny! Another one of the highlights was the Zip wire. It was really high but so fun. Everyone really enjoyed it even though it was scary at times. Overall, Whitemoor was absolutely incredible and I enjoyed every single minute. I’m so thankful. - By Grace T
Whitemoor was a very fun experience and if I had the choice, I would definitely do it all again - By Freya W
Early Monday morning we were in the main hall getting ready to leave school. We were all really excited to have an adventure of a life time. We arrived at Whitemoor at around 1pm. After settling into our new rooms we then started our activities. My groups first activity was indoor enigma which then lead us up to the zip wire. We climbed up the three flights of stairs and I looked over the edge and thought to myself I couldn't do it but then I jumped over and it was amazing. In the evening we had chilli and nachos. Tuesday we started with the animal experience which was really cool to see and touch different animals. Early afternoon, we headed off to canoeing which was fun to learn a new skill and play loads of games. Later that night the whole of year 6 joined in to play a game of bingo and that was really fun. Wednesday was a busy day for everyone, first our group did abseiling and it was quite nerve-wracking to lean back over the edge but it was quite fun afterwards. Then we went on to the gladiators course and we learnt how to work as a team to pull each other up the obstacles. In the afternoon we went to the National Arboretum. Thursday we did the leap of faith which was really really really scary! - By Amelie W
