On Wednesday 9 June, Year 6 embarked on their residential to Braeside. Across the three days the pupils enjoyed various activities and challenges which required bravery, teamwork and communication.
They were given all sorts of low rope activities to complete in teams or in pairs and a ‘night-line’ challenge which involved the children navigating their blindfolded partners through the forest, over and under logs, and up hills!
After a challenging crate-stacking task, in which they had to stack as fast as possible without their harnessed team mate falling off, the group were also very excited to have a go at the legendary ‘Leap of Faith’!
Over the course of the trip it was fantastic to see how the pupils developed their skills throughout the challenges and activities and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying their free time together with friends, singing songs around a campfire, roasting marshmallows, playing a variety of games, and relaxing.
After the last year, we are thrilled that these trips can go ahead again as they provide an excellent learning experience with fantastic opportunities, and the pupils wasted no time getting stuck in!
