Adventure day at Hindleap Warren - Hurstpierpoint College

Adventure day at Hindleap Warren

Year 4 pupils engage in teambuilding activities

Year 4 pupils embarked on a day of adventure at Hindleap Warren outdoor activity centre, to encourage co-operation, risk-taking and develop team building skills. 

On arrival, pupils were briefed about the day and sent off on their first task. Activities included archery, a high wire pentagon course and using team work to solve physical and mental puzzles in the woods. They worked collaboratively in each activity and impressed with their positive attitude and willingness to attempt and complete new things. They broadened their communication skills throughout the day, learnt to negotiate and take the lead and some, including the teachers, overcame their fear of heights!

The day concluded with an exciting orienteering task, in which teams competed by using map skills to find clues hidden around the site. The excitement was tangible as pupils raced against the clock.


“It was a tremendous day and our pupils returned exhausted but enthused by the whole experience,” Kate O’Neill, Year 4 Tutor.
