Year 6 Kingswood Trip
Each year we take our Year 6 children to an activity centre for a residential trip. The children really enjoy the activities but it is about so much more than having a fun time: it is also about becoming more independent, developing new skills and overcoming challenges.
This year's group have had a great time working on testing physical challenges, collaborating on team exercises and using their wits to complete problem solving tasks. They also had great fun on the water in (and out!) of their kayaks. They have approached the activities positively and have been good ambassadors of the school. Some of the activities have been very challenging and we have been proud to see the children overcome their fears to achieve their goals. We hope that they will be able to apply some of the lessons they have learned when they face other challenges in their school work and in their future lives.
We are very grateful to the hard-working, patient and encouraging staff who have supported the children on this trip: Mrs Barton (trip leader), Ms Hall, Mrs Bredenkamp, Mrs Cox and Mr Hunt - and to their families who allowed them to come! We would also like to thank Miss Duffy and Mrs Dudley for their organisation and support of the trip.
Day 2 Low Ropes
After completing some 'trust exercises', children had to worked together to guide a team mate around all the low rope challenges. Whilst one person attempted the challenges, two others walked alongside to help them if they started to fall.
Day 2 Kayaking
As the sun shone on the lake at the Kingswood centre, the Year 6 children learned to control their kayaks. They played a number of games and attempted challenges such as standing up in their kayak or getting as many people as possible on one kayak. It seemed that what they enjoyed most was falling in!
Day 1 Nightline
Our first activity was Nightline, where the children were blindfolded and had to follow a course. To do this successfully they needed to help one another, trusting the person in front of them and giving instructions to the person behind them.
