  • Isle of Wight 2023 Day 3

    Tue 13 Jun 2023

    Here are some great photos of today!  We faced the challenges of the climbing wall, we used brain and team work during some tricky problem solving challenges.  Our map work skills were used during orienteering and a wonderful afternoon was had by ALL board boarding with our excellent instructors in the water on the beach.  It was enormous fun, jumping and somersaulting off and riding our body boards!  Everybody took the plunge!!

  • Isle Of Wight 2023 - Day 2

    Tue 13 Jun 2023

    Tuesday has dawned, bright and beautiful! EVERYBODY enjoyed a good night's sleep. Much fun was had yesterday: orienteering around the whole site, working as a team to traverse our way across the nightline, swooping up and down on the 3G swing and competitive trampolining in Aeroball. 


    Monday finished with a wonderful walk along the coastal path up to the Culver monument where we enjoyed panoramic views across the Solent to the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth along the Hampshire coast. Our circular route past remains of World War 2 battlements and a beacon to commemorate the defeat of the Spanish Armada. 


    Into the evening the children enjoyed a bit of free time, playing ball games and being amongst each other. 


    Today, we are looking forward to an assortment of different problem solving activities, climbing high and taking a dip whilst bodyboarding in the sea. 

  • Day 1 Yr 6 residential - Isle of Wight

    Mon 12 Jun 2023

    Following an excellent night's sleep for all children we have awoken to a bright and sunny morning at Bembridge! Yesterdays journey went well. We all enjoyed the views of the Solent from the ferry and the beautiful green countryside.


    On arrival, we met our instructor and settled into our lodges.  Straight after that, we hit the ground running and went into our afternoon activities.  Dinner was a hearty meal of chicken, wedges, veg and ice cream.  We then competed in the Mini Olympics with our two instructors working brilliantly in teams to complete weird and wacky races!


    Children then played rounders, volleyball and football before settling down to some quiet circle time before tucking ourselves up into bed. 


    ALL children are happy and enjoying themselves.  Today, we will be busy with nightline, 3G swing areoball, problem solving, bush craft and an obstacle course.


    After our evening meal we will be walking to the Culver monument to enjoy the views. 




  • Year 4 Residential to Woodrow High House - Day 3

    Fri 31 Mar 2023

    We woke up to another soggy morning but that didn't stop us from making the most of our last day on our first residential trip. We all had to use our strength to build catapults and shoot at targets - great fun! 

    We packed up all our belongings and cleared our rooms before lunch and then waited to be collected. We had a great time on our trip and can't wait to do it again in year 6!

  • Year 4 Residential to Woodrow High House - Day 2

    Tue 28 Mar 2023

    Although it was pretty soggy outside, it didn't put us off having another day of fun adventures! After a breakfast of waffles, we got into our groups and took park in archery, wacky races and learning pioneering skills.

    After all the fresh air and running around we were starting to feel a bit tired, but a dinner of pasta and garlic bread refueled us in time for an evening quiz!  It was then off to bed to get rest for our last day!


  • Year 4 Residential to Woodrow High House - Day 1

    Mon 27 Mar 2023

    Year 4 had an action packed, fun filled first day at Woodrow High House.  We started with a tour of the house and grounds to familiarise ourselves with our new surroundings and then all got involved in a scavenger hunt!

    After lunch we got into our groups and took part in various activities including Low Ropes and Nightline where we had black out goggles and had to follow an assault course - very amusing!

    After a dinner of hotdogs, we have some outdoor games and a bedtime story read by Miss Grosvenor.  We are all looking forward to tomorrow!
