Last we released a fantastic short piece of writing written by Godwin about his experience at Woodrow High House on a FBB Reward Trip. Today, we have another great diary written by Tyreece on what he thought about a weekend outside of London.
The trip I went on with FBB was at Woodrow High House in Buckinghamshire. We stayed there for two nights and did Archery, Challenge Course and Nightline. In the evening we had a campfire session where we learned how to make fire, and played lots of football.
I liked it at Woodrow High House because I was trusted to do something well and to lead a group of friends. As captain in nightline, I had to make signals for everybody and tell them which way to go, like under or over, or left or right. As captain of the campfire, you need to tell everybody what they should be doing, so I needed to really know what was going on. As captain in archery, I cheered everyone on and helped them to get their arrows right. I also supported them by saying kind things. My favourite part of the trip was when Tyreke jumped off the bunkbed and fell on the ground. It was really funny! I really enjoyed everything about the trip, though, and I really want to go on the next trip, but only if the house isn’t haunted!
AMAZING FACT: The house we stayed in was haunted! There were two pictures that were separated and placed in different parts of the house. Then one day, they moved by themselves and ended up next to each other.
