On Tuesday morning Year 5 set off on their adventure to the Isle of Wight. They enjoyed their trip on the ferry and spent their first evening walking along the seafront to ‘The Lost World of Adventure’ for a round of crazy golf, which had a rain forest theme and amazing sound effects!  

Wednesday’s activities were a trip to the Needles Sand Shop where the children filled a plastic shape with layers of different coloured sand from Alum Bay. They then took a boat ride from Alum Bay which enabled them to see the views of the coloured sands of the cliffs in their full glory! In the afternoon Year 5 went to Carisbrooke Castle where they saw King Charles I’s bowling green and learnt about the history of the Castle which has experienced sieges, imprisoned kings and seen off the Spanish Armada! They finished their day with beach games and hot chocolate, before going to bed to recharge for another busy day!  

On Thursday’s agenda was a trip to Amazon World Zoo Park where the group got to experience the wallaby and lemur walkthrough and meet the many rare and endangered rainforest animals that live in their specially recreated habitat. Their evening activity was a friendly bowling competition at Ryde Superbowl.  

Friday was their final day where they enjoyed an interesting talk about fossils, before walking up to Yaverland Bay to see where you can go on fossil hunts! 

Year 5 had the best time on their jam-packed trip! A huge thank you to all of the teachers that helped to run the trip.
