    Published 08/11/18, by Andy Mari

    Year 6 have had a great afternoon at Kingswood. The staff beat the kids at Aeroball (I wonder which member of staff was being competitive there?), however the children triumphed at Archery. The evening entertainment is Mini Olympics followed by hot chocolate and bed. So be sure that the children will be sleeping well tonight, ready for the last day and the journey home!

    Day 3- The children slept well last night and so were well rested for today. There were a few pranks attempted on the staff during the morning Dorm time, however they haven't got one over on us....yet! The children have had a fun packed morning playing football rounders, building rockets and tackling Team Work Challenges. The children have shown great resilience, communication and leadership.

The children have settled into the routine at Kingswood quickly and have been problem solving together and scaling heights up Jacobs Ladder and Zip Wire. Below there are more pictures on the word document for viewing. Were off to the beach!

  • Kingswood!

    Published 07/11/18, by Ceri Thomas

    Year 6 have had a great start to their week at Kingswood. The coach journey was long and loud and the children were ready to stretch their legs and explore as soon as they got off. We have met our group leader: Harry, who,  full of enthusiasm, led the group around the site for a quick tour before a delicious dinner.

    After dinner, the children carried out their first activity: Nightline. Forming a single file line, the children were blindfolded and led around a tricky obstacle course in the forest while the staff got their own back (in advance for the lack of sleep) by making them jump as they went. There was a lot of mud and a lot of excitable screaming!

    Next, the quiz. In groups of 4, the children completed a general knowledge quiz (which I'm relieved to say the staff team won!). Coming a close second were Harry, Liam, George and Cory. Well done boys!

    The children slept well throughout the night (mostly) and are now beginning today's activities. They will be zip wiring, climbing Jacob's ladder and visiting the coast today.

    They are all safe, well and very happy. Enjoy the photos!
