Year 6 went to Arethusa in Kent on a school residential trip. They learnt lots of new skills including rock climbing, archery and team building.
A fantastic time was had by all the children, taking home lots of lovely memories as well as a suitcase of muddy clothes! The centre staff looked after us very well making sure we were not hungry and that we had everything we needed. The activity leaders taught the children how to do lots of new things and showed them that it is good to step out of their comfort zone and be a little bit scared sometimes! Well done to all those children who were super-brave attempting new challenging activities!
The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, were extremely well behaved and were an absolute credit to the school. Have a look at some of the photos below to see just how much fun we had:
Imperial War Museum
Year 6 recently visited the Imperial War Museum in Duxford which was used as a training station for the Royal Air Force and played a major role in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War. We saw a unique collection of aircraft, including a Spitfire and a Lancaster, as well as tanks and military vehicles and a working airfield. The children were very well behaved and learned lots. Look at some of the photos below to see them enjoying themselves:
Year 6 had a lovely visit to Horton Kirby. They delved into the scientific world of grouping and classification of animals. First, they learnt about the different types of invertebrates and after that, how they were classified. Next, they got to go down to the river to have a go themselves. The children were well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed getting into the water. They were amazed at how many different types of organisms they could find; one group even caught a fish! A big thank you to everyone at Horton Kirby for making us so welcome and giving us such a fun day out!
