Year Six go to PGL
With beaming smiles, our very excited Year Six children arrived at school towing their cases behind them. The day started as usual with Gold Book assembly and then back in to class for the final preparations. Before they knew it, they were being called for lunch and the excitement was mounting.
After a good journey, the group arrived mid-afternoon and were soon settled into their rooms. No sooner had they had their dinner than the children were off to gather around the campfire for more fun and games.
The day dawned bright as sleepy figures dragged themselves from their rooms … that was just the teachers!!
After a hearty breakfast of bacon and beans, followed by as much cereal and toast as they could manage, the children set off on their first morning of activities which included raft-building, Jacob’s ladder, archery and aeroball.
Following lunch of either chilli or chicken wrap, it was back outside for more activity. This time rifle-shooting, abseiling and trapeze. Not everyone was that keen on the thought of some of these but their friends were full of encouragement enabling several children to overcome their fears and finish the afternoon with a real sense of achievement.
Year Six go to Forest School
Those children not attending, had the opportunity to attend Forest School at Chartham Hatch for the day on Friday 23rd September.
They also set off very excitedly, albeit somewhat earlier than their PGL counterparts, for a fun-filled day in the woodland. Seeing their smiling (if a little grubby!) faces on their return, we knew that they too had had a great time. Activities included campfire building, use of tools, bushcraft skills and sensory games. Photos to follow.
