Year 6 Hook Day- September 2019

Hook Day-Autumn- ‘Only the Brave’
As our curriculum this term is all about be brave and showing courage, we challenged ourselves in different ways to test how ‘brave’ we really are. We took on the mighty St James obstacle course, where we dared ourselves to climb higher and test our limits. To test our resolve we took on Mrs Parker’s Bushtucker Trial, testing out different foods all whilst blindfolded- it certainly tested our nerves! Finally, to see if we could survive in the wilderness with only our wits and a few basic materials, we attempted to construct our own shelters. It was a great day, where we challenged and pushed ourselves to be brave! Next up…Take the Risk! Can we complete our mission?

We have started our Autumn Term with a Hook Day named – Only the brave – will you take the risk?

Children took part in making tents using poles and string. Would their tents withstand the cold in Antarctica? Children tried a variety of bush tucker trail foods – who ate the worms?
