Year 6 Residentials
Every year, our Year 6 pupils are invited to attend a residential. During this time, the children spend two nights away from home and spend time team building; solving problems; overcoming fears and developing new friendships. This is the perfect way to try new and exciting activities in a safe environment that they might not have the opportunity to try in their every day lives.
This year, the children went to Brixham's Grenville House. The aim of the residential experience is to provide the opportunity to develop life-skills, mutual respect, and promote teamwork. Rotas are set up by visiting group leaders to ensure that everybody contributes to the daily routine of cleaning, washing dishes, setting tables for meals, keeping dormitories tidy etc. Children develop basic skills such as timekeeping, making beds and being organised.
Even though it was cold outside, we were dressed for the elements and enjoyed orienteering on Berry Head; canoeing in the harbour with the seals; completing high ropes and climbing walls.
