The Y6s are spending a week at Kingswood on residential. They are really enjoying themselves. Many teachers and school staff are giving up their time to make sure the children have the best possible experience. I am always so grateful to the team for that. I paid a visit Monday and Tuesday night to make sure the children were settled and I spent a full morning there today. The children worked well as a team, supported each other, encouraged everyone, followed safety instructions carefully and experienced things they had never experienced before. The pupils are thriving!
Conquering fears on the climbing wall. Daring to look down. Reaching the top. Climbing higher than imagined.
Working as a team to build a den that fulfilled the brief: facing away from the wind and rain; keeping yourselves dry and warm; and co-operating to get the job done on time.
Fencing: learning a new skill, competing, ensuring you follow instructions in order to stay safe. Who would have known that the way you start a fencing bout is by slapping each other across the (masked) face with a leather glove?
High All Aboard! This task is so tricky. The platform is tiny and really high! Children have to negotiate the platform in order to both reach the top. Teamwork is essential. Often, children don’t even realise how high up they are. This team made it to the top and balanced on one leg before performing “heads, shoulders, knees and toes”!
Teamwork on the High Ropes. Children experience what it is like to secure each other to the pully system and ensure everyone plays a key part.
