Dragon Award Bronze Expedition

"The 4th of October finally arrived as we departed for our much awaited camping trip. It took 3 hours to get to Simba Farm in West Kili but it sure was worth it! When we got there we talked about a few rules and played temple. We also got to know are tent buddies and of course had lunch. After lunch we organised our tents, went to watch the sunset before dinner and then roasted marshmallows around the camp fire. Mr. B read a nice story it was scary but we loved it! We went into our tents and had talk time for 5 minutes before lights out.

The second day the year 4s woke up really early, like 4:30 am.   We had a big breakfast consisting of uji, pancakes, hot chocolate or tea! It was very yummy.  Then it was the start of the team building activities. We had to spin round and round for 10 counts and then try and kick a football to score a goal. It was very funny to watch. This was followed by bobbing for tomatoes and getting a mentos out of a plate of flour. The photos reveal all. Before we knew it, it was time for lunch again. We had to eat our lunch quickly as the grey clouds were getting nearer. Due to rain we had some time in our tent after lunch brainstorming questions for the quiz.  We ended the day with a nice long walk to stretch our legs and an early evening talent show and disco.

We were lucky enough on day 3 to have a nice sunny morning to go on the waterfall hike. I don’t think we have ever swum in such cold water but boy was it fun! Definitely a highlight of the trip! After another scrummy lunch we started the long journey back home. Thanks to Mr. B and his tunes for making the bus trips so enjoyable. We were rather sad to come back but all good things come to an end! A memorable start to our Dragon awards!"
