Outdoor adventure at Calthorpe Haven

Today, at Calthorpe Haven we had a jam packed outdoor adventure P.E lesson. The P.E lesson involved some really hard activities, team work was the key to successfully winning the challenges. The first challenge was to turn the tarpaulin upside down, the only problem was we were all stood on it.
Next we did something called orienteering, which is when you use a map to find a code. Once you had found all the letters for the code you had to rearrange them to make a well known phrase. That phrase was its not fair and that’s the name of our topic.
Finally, we played another team work game which was using 2 small hoops to get five people across the field.

Take a look at us having fun.
