Wednesday 6th January is now a teacher training day. School opens for the spring term on Thursday 7th January. Parent consultations are taking place on Wednesday 18th November, emails have been sent to explain how to book a virtual appointment. |
From the 12th – 16th November, 28 children from Years 5 and 6 went on a school journey to Carroty Wood, an outdoor adventure centre based in Tonbridge, Kent.
They spent the week taking part in many outdoor activities and well as swimming. They stayed in a lovely lodge called Hornbeam House and were catered for by our very own staff.
Every day started with a wonderful cooked breakfast, followed by their first activity. Lunch was a packed lunch followed by their second activity. Their evening meal was very filling with some children even having seconds! Children received a hot drink before they went to bed.
The activities included high ropes – supporting one another and taking “The Leap of Faith”!; karting – children were working on their driving skills as well as racing each other; BMX biking – children were set challenges using their skills of riding a BMX on an obstacle course and also rode a short track with hills to negotiate; low rope activities – there were 20 different elements of this course designed for group development and team building; and bush craft skills – involving the practical task of building a bridge out of logs and rope, building shelters for the whole group and, throughout, having to work closely as a team.
