Year 6 Residential and Year 5 Activity Days

The highlight for this week has been the Year 6 residential and Year 5 activity days.  The Year 6 children have experienced a variety of water based activities including stand up paddleboarding, kayaking and wayfarer sailing.  The evenings have been spent doing games on the beach, quizzes, sand castle competitions and a crabbing contest.  We have also been well looked after at meal times.  The sun shone throughout the stay and the smiles on the children’s faces were priceless.  Year 5 also had a great day tackling the junior Go-Ape course at Haldon forest.  There was a real sense of community with children working well with each other and with children from the Federation and they all offered support and encouragement to those that needed it to ensure everyone was able to overcome any anxieties and enjoy the experience.  Once they had conquered one tricky element, there was no hesitation in completing the course which was great to see.  Well done to all!
