Y6 Residential Trip

Year 6 visited Kingswood, Colomendy in July 2021 for a packed three days of fun and adventure. 
 
The itinerary included: 
 
  • Abseiling
  • Night walk 
  • Problem solving challenges
  • Archery
  • Zip Wiring
  • Orienteering
  • Jacob's Ladder
  • Buggy Building 
 
The children experienced new activities that they had never tackled before such as zip wiring, abseiling and buggy building taking risks and finding the courage, independence and resilience to face new challenges.
 
The children developed their communication skills and worked as a team throughout the trip to help, support and encourage their friends face new experiences and persevere when they were unsure.
 
They applied knowledge and critical thinking when map reading and navigating through the orienteering activities and exploring with their scientific knowledge when identifying types of trees and stars on the night walk with our guide, Ellie.  The staff were impressed by the courage, confidence and reflective attitude that the children showed throughout the trip in tackling new challenges, facing their fears and supporting and caring for their friends. 
 
Thank you to Year 6 for an amazing trip - you are an absolute credit to our school and your families!
