Last week Year Six went on our annual residential trip to Robinwood. The children were absolutely fantastic. Their behaviour was excellent and they made good progress communicating, listening and developing teamwork. It was lovely to hear the way they encouraged one another on some of the more difficult challenges and to see children working together successfully in pairs and groups with others they would not normally work with. One of the best aspects from the staff’s point of view was to see children embracing new challenges and conquering their fears. Some children who were afraid of activities such as climbing at the beginning for the residential were scampering up fearlessly by the end!
We would say a big thank you to all the children and adults who went, as well as the wonderful staff at Robinwood for making the residential such a great experience.
