Medieval sculpture making
Over the past few days, Year 5 and 6 have been visited by some very talented artists, in preparation for the medieval festival parade. Throughout the day, the children worked incredibly hard to create some amazing sculptures, which will be paraded through the town. They look amazing, wouldn’t you agree!
Wednesday morning started early with a lot of bleary eyed faces in Yukon Lodge, the teachers included! Once packed we headed off to breakfast where a choice of cereals, toast and a hot breakfast were on offer. This was quickly devoured and we headed off to our first activities of the day (Raft building, High ropes and Abseiling/Zip Line). Any tired faces quickly disappeared and were replaced with excitement and laughter.
Today Year 4 set off on our eagerly awaited residential to the Pioneer Centre. When we arrived we were welcomed by the fantastic staff who showed us to our lodge. Each group was given a tour of the facilities and shown the different activities which they would be completing. We were soon split into our groups and were heading towards our first session (Archery, Raft building, High ropes & Climbing). All the children performed brilliantly and were full of energy and demonstrated teamwork and problem solving skills. This was then followed by another activity before heading off for our tea.
On Friday, to celebrate the completion their SATS assessments, Year 6 enjoyed a day filled with fun activities. The sun was shining and the children were encouraged to relax and spend their time outdoors as the music played!
The children took the opportunity to play rounders and football; teach each other new dance routines and play the game ‘Smash the Moustache!’ In the afternoon, the children also enjoyed a picnic on the field.
We would like to say a HUGE well done to Year 6. You have worked incredibly hard this week and we are so proud of your attitude and focus during your tests.
