Porthpean Camp 2018

Years 3 and 4 had such an amazing time at Porthpean Camp! 
We had lots of fun participating in loads of different activities with one another. On the first day, we got set up in our tents and enjoyed getting comfortable and settled with our friends. We then had a go at climbing and archery. Some of us were like Spiderman zooming up the climbing wall, it was very impressive! We all enjoyed archery and had a go at getting a bullseye, it wasn't as easy as it looked!
After dinner we enjoyed playing outside with each other and then a hot chocolate with all of the teachers. In the evening we got ready for bed and enjoyed talking in our tents...we didn't get much sleep!
The second day was an adventure-filled day spent on Porthpean beach. It was such a beautiful day, we were very lucky to have such wonderful weather. We enjoyed participating in activities like: kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and coasteering. We all had a go at different activities and enjoyed jumping into the sea with one another, it was very exciting and we were all exhausted afterwards! 
On the final day we had to tidy our tents and pack before starting our final activity. We did the High Ropes activity which included a fun zip-wire and some very high ropes! We were great at cheering each other on when we were faced with a challenge. 
Everyone joined in and the children were a pleasure to take on camp.
I would like to say well done to everyone for such a wonderful camp, all of the children made me very proud and the staff praised the children's manners and team spirit.
