Y4 and Y5 Young Pioneers attended the young pioneers sleepover in June where they enjoyed an evening of activities, fun and games before camping on the front fields of TDA.
The students worked in teams to complete the carousel of outdoor pursuits including map reading skills, a treasure hunt, walking the night line and toasting marshmallows using their own, hand-carved whittling sticks after which, they competed in a 'Capture the Flag' tournament. After using up all of their energy on the fun and games it was time to calm things down a bit with some hot chocolate and singing around the camp-fire.
Despite the early sunrise and birds waking everyone up at 4am everyone had a fantastic time and we have on good authority that the children are already looking forward to next year!!
