In the summer term of year 5/6, your child can have the opportunity to visit Marwell activity centre for a 5 day residential trip.
This is an opportunity to ‘step-up’ to the next level, with more challenging activities. The children get the chance to use all of their Amazing 8 skills when living alongside their peers and their Teachers, for five days and four nights.
The most popular activities in the past prove to be Quad Biking, the Aerial Adventure Course, the 3G Giant Swing, Rifle Shooting, Zip Wire and the Trapeze. Children encourage each other to push themselves further, and the sense of achievement is evident every day.
Children and adults enjoy home-cooked meals in the evening, and then exciting evening activities. The children battle it out in a ‘Fun House’ style quiz, with the children dashing around a padded maze of obstacles to find coloured stars.
By the end of week, children and staff return to school feeling thoroughly fulfilled, and already looking forward to next year!
The Year 3 and 4 team Venture to a marvelous Tudor house not far from our school called Ufton Court, and spend four days and three nights taking part in exciting and stimulating pursuits. Our children thoroughly enjoy exploring the Tudor mansion before the important task of making their own beds for the week.
Children get to use the incredible facilities available at Ufton Court to develop their History, science and social skills.
Children can re-enact a Tudor Raid, learn Archery, orienteering to name only a few of the wonderful activities that take place.
In other areas, the children wear blindfolds to be carefully led through a forest track by a partner and building shelter as a team before testing their ability to keep water out. This gets incredibly fun!!
There is no better way to finish the week off than with a medieval banquet of around the world fiesta. It is the icing on the cake after a jammed packed adventurous week for the children, who could barely keep their eyes open for the coach journey home.
Another incredibly successful set of residential trips, that were able to draw out all of the Amazing 8 super powers from the children, giving them the opportunity to shine outside the classroom.
