A Small School with a Big Outlook

Residential Trip 2017

Our Year 5 and 6 pupils have had an amazing week in Borwick. Beautiful sunny days and lots of challenging activities kept everyone active and working together.






Monday 22nd May – Today we enjoyed a lovely walk along the canal and a picnic lunch before meeting our team leader and instructor for the week.  The afternoon was taken up with team challenges – some of which were really tricky!  A delicious evening meal, free time to play in the grounds and then bed at around 9.45.  Everyone was asleep by 11pm!

Tuesday 23rd May– A glorious sunny day.  Today we have been climbing but not on indoor climbing walls – instead on very tall trees; the platform challenge and the leap of faith.  Some people overcame their fears and others leapt straight to the top.  We were proud of everyone – especially those who helped get Mrs Hesketh onto the second platform!

A delicious lunch sat outside in the sun and a ‘rocky ramble’ for the afternoon.

Wednesday 24th May – Another lovely sunny day. Today was action packed – the low ropes course, archery and canoeing along the canal. Who got wet?

Thursday 25th May – our last day! Packing, cleaning rooms and then orienteering challenges.

Thank you to everyone for a wonderful week! We’ve had lots of fun and time together with our friends from both schools. We’ve learned about team work, compromise, listening to others, resilience and that having a go is fun even when something is a real challenge.
