Year 6 residential trip

Liddington October 18


Arrival! - Although a little chilly, we arrived at Liddington in beautiful sunshine with some very excited children.  After playing chaos tag, the children familiarised themselves with their new room before dinner.  Games night in the sports hall included dodgeball, ball tag and a rather different game of football. Now all the children are tucked up in bed ready for tomorrow's adventures.



What a busy day!  Our first morning of adventures began after a hearty, cooked breakfast then groups went off to complete challenge course, vertical challenge, sports & team games and Jacob's ladder.  The morning's activities set them up for a cracking afternoon where the children displayed resilience, determination, courage, bravery and lots of happiness.  Groups abseiled and climbed with confidence, completed crate challenges and played Aeroball.  After an evening of Passport To The World, all the children are now ready for tomorrow's challenges.



A frosty scene greeted us this morning on our walk to breakfast.  Plenty of layers and woolly hats were needed whilst tackling the giant swing, challenge course, crate challenge, zip wire and archery. Many children faced their fears with a smile of satisfaction when they achieved the jump of faith on the trapeze this afternoon.  Our evening finished with a lively game of Wacky Races, resulting in all the teachers turning into mummies with the help of the children and many rolls of toilet paper!  What will tomorrow bring?



This morning's rain and fog didn't dampen any children's spirits as they leapt off Jacob's ladder, abseiled  and climbed like professionals.  In the afternoon, they duelled like fencing champions and struck a fine pose in their masks and foils.  The evening was topped off with a fantastic camp fire, with plenty of singing and toasted marshmallows under a starlit sky.  A fitting end to a perfect week.
