Pupils from Northgate Primary School in Great Yarmouth have stayed at Aylmerton Study Centre for a fun-packed few days of outdoor activities

The Year 4 cohort enjoyed a two night residential trip.

Outdoor activities included tackling low ropes, camouflage and den-building and swinging above water on a self-constructed zip wire.

Throughout the trip, the children were encouraged to focus on teamwork and they worked so well at communicating and encouraging each other.

Children overcame their fears and were proud of each other as they tackled the different challenges. One of the highlights was the night walk, where the children trekked through a local woodland, listening to the forest sounds and meeting George, an ancient hollow oak tree.

Sarah Young, from the school, said: “The entire experience was enjoyed by staff and pupils; it will be a lasting highlight of their time in Year 4.”
