Laches Wood (Monday 8th October - Friday 12th October)

What a fantastic week away we had! The children were absolutely brilliant and engaged in all of the activities with such great enthusiasm. They took part in so many wonderful learning opportunities including: bushcraft, canoeing, BMX-ing, high ropes, indoor caving, climbing wall, boulder room and a full day walking in Carding Mill Valley. We were blessed with some amazing weather - other than the Friday - and this made, in particular, our walk in Carding Mill even more enjoyable!


Our intended outcomes (which they have made some progress with) were to:

  • get along better with each other
  • develop listening skills
  • developi residence to how they react to each other


The whole of the Year Six team were so very proud of them and it was a pleasure to be part of this experience with them. Please have a look at the photos below and enjoy having seeing  what we got up to.

Launch of our class text 'Holes' and our 'Survival' topic!

Have you ever considered how hard it is to dig a hole? Well, yesterday The Survivors found out! To help them understand what it was like for the 'campers' at Camp Green Lake  - the setting for our new class text 'Holes' by Louis Sachar - the children were put in teams and were asked to work together to dig a hole the width and depth of their spade! They entered in to it with great spirit and even gave themselves nicknames! Have a look at the fabulous photos below - and don't forget to look out for Mr. Sir!
