Holiday Club: 01–05 July 2019. The Whole Story. Bungle in the Jungle: Lost with my Class! – (8–12 Yrs)
You are on the school trip of a lifetime – to the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil! Today, you and your class are en route to a survival skills workshop at a local nature reserve. You can’t wait to discover what skills you’d need to survive in the jungle! When your bus driver offers to take the class via the ‘scenic route’, your teacher, relenting, agrees. Brilliant! You and your friends gawk out the window at the thickening rainforest, as blurred greens, browns and scarlets flash past. As the jungle continues to thicken, and the terrain becomes more and more bumpy, you notice your teacher looking very uneasy indeed. He leans forwards to talk to the driver, when the bus takes an violent lurch forwards, throwing you clean off your seat. It judders to a halt. You are out of fuel, in the middle of the Amazon! It looks like you might be gaining some survival skills a little earlier than you expected…
Uh oh! In this course, writers will have to think on their feet as they craft a dramatic adventure story. What threats might they come across in the forest? How will they escape? Our writers will learn that, sometimes, the greatest key to survival has a lot more to do with teamwork than individual acts of reckless bravery. They will consider how the class dynamic will change after days of limited food and water, and create characters with surprising depths – both positive and negative – that will reveal themselves over the course of this story on exceptional circumstances.
