To start our new topic of 'Everyday Heroes' we had an outdoor survival day on our first day back.
We had a fantastic time where we learnt different skills, Shown to us by Bear Grylls, that would help us to survive in the harshest of conditions.
We start by learning the importance of the rule of 3 to help to survive. First you start with 3 minutes without oxygen, then 3 hours without shelter, then 3 days without water and finally 3 weeks without food.
We had to tackle the outdoor obstacle course where we climbed across the slippy bridge, crawled through the deep, dark tunnel, carried our equipment through a river and fended off dangerous, wild animals.
We then learnt how to forage for food, looking at what we should avoid and what we could eat.
We learnt how to create a shelter that would keep us warm and dry. This came in very helpful as the rain began to fall.
Finally, we took some time to appreciate the beautiful world we live in and created some sketches of what we could see and went on a bug hunt.
This week we got the chance to complete our Mansfield Town FC Penalty Shootout competition. We were really excited to take part.
We cheered each other on and all showed great determination!
Two children (Emily D and William B) in Mr. Blackwell's class scored 5/5 goals and went through to a Sudden Death knockout situation. We'd like to congratulate William B on winning a 8 goal sudden death thriller!
Well done to all the children that took part and raised money!
