Yr6 Kingswood: Thursday & Friday


Another fun packed day including a mixture of abseiling, aeroball and archery. Once again the children have 100 % effort in all that they did.

In the afternoon they were in the pool before they hit the dance floor at the disco.


Up early, packed and bags are in storage. Jacob’s ladder and Environmental art this morning before an rally lunch and then we will leave for home.

We will put an estimated time of arrival on the website one we leave.

The children are looking forward to seeing you all soon…

Yr6 Kingswood: Wednesday


The children are well in the swing of things now!

Shower, bed and lights out by 10pm and up at 7.30am.

We have had some great comments from our hosts about our children who have had a go at all the activities so far without any fear or complaints.

Today, two teams built shelters the woods. They were split into groups and communicated well while solving the problem of getting the shelter to stand up!

Then came the big 3G swing. All the children in my group made it to the highest point. There were a few shocked faces when they released the ripcord.

Nightline proved a hit and we ended up with a few muddy children as they navigated the obstacle course blindfolded but they persevered, working well as a team.

We say goodbye to Ms Barber this morning and Mr Rowbotham will be taking over.

Once again the children are eating well with plenty of seconds and all have slept well through the night.


Year 6 Kingswood Trip:Tuesday


Another full day of fun packed with many hair-raising activities.

Leap of faith proved to be no obstacle for most children with Efosa managing to catch the trapeze first time.

Outdoor laser saw the groups split and working in teams to develop their communication and cooperation skills. After lunch some children worked collaboratively to make a buggy on which they were delighted to push and take rides across on the field.

All the children are eating well and there is ample food with plenty of seconds.

Power Fan was a hit! Climbing a 20m pole and jumping off. Sophia and Barbara were very brave leading the way for the others.

After dinner, the children were back in the Gym playing Mini Olympics until 9pm before a shower and bed.

We had a quiet night and woke them at 7.30am.

They will be given their letters today and an opportunity to reply…hopefully no tears!

That’s all for now. Next update tomorrow…

Year 6 Kingswood Trip: Monday

The children are settling in nicely. Last night, Teams 13 and 14 completed a tech challenge where they had to make a working wheelbarrow out of large Meccano. They were very creative, working well in small teams, and came up with some amazing ideas.

Meanwhile teams 15 and 16 were racing through the Rope Park on the zip wire. They were all keen and brave – they even got Ms Rizou and Ms Barber to have a go.  After an exciting day they settled well and got to bed about 10pm. 

Dinner went down a treat, especially the jam doughnuts, and there were lots of clean plates.

They have all slept well and got up at 7.30 to be ready for an 8.15 breakfast and a long day packed full of fun! More to follow tomorrow…
