On Sunday 16th September 2018, Class 5 set off for our annual residential visit to Kingswood, Dukeshousewood – near Hexham. The children, Mr Myers, Miss Elsdon and Dean Tinkler spent three nights and four days taking part in a wide variety of different activities.
Feedback from the children:
“Kingswood is a phenomenal place to visit and great for birthdays and trips. I would highly recommend it for children over eight” said Dan (Year 6).
“My favourite thing at Kingswood was the zip wire because it was fun” – William (Year 6).
“I loved the 3G swing because it was exciting!” said Chloe (Year 5).
“When you got to the top of the Leap of Faith, it was really wobbly!” – Laycee (Year 5).
“I liked Kingswood because the staff were amazing and I liked all of the activities,” said Tyla (Year 5).
“ I really enjoyed all of the high ropes because they challenged me mentally and physically!” claimed Bonnie (Year 6).
“I love Jacob’s Ladder even though I didn’t get to the top because it was wobbling,” said Georgia (Year 6).
“The Leap of faith was scary in a way that I liked it,” – Ashton (Year 5).
Feedback from the staff:
“This was the best behaved group I have worked with for years. They were really good fun and took on all of the challenges,” said Dean Tinkler.
“I am really proud of every one of our children. They all tried the activities, even when they were apprehensive they showed real courage and resilience. As always they were a credit to our school!” Mr Myers (Head Teacher).
“I was really impressed with the courage displayed by all of the children. It was really fun getting to know the lovely group of children in Class 5!” Miss Elsdon (Teacher).
