Year 5 continue to enjoy their time at Ironbridge. Please see a small selection of photos below that show some of the activities they have been enjoying.
The Year 6 children continue to have a great time in France. They have done lots of different activities including using their French when visiting a local primary school, riding a variety of rides at Parc Asterix, ordering and enjoying an evening meal in a Parisian restaurant as well as enjoying free time at their base for the week.
The children have had a great few days and are currently enjoying the weather before getting ready to head back to school. The children will be back at school and ready for pick-up at normal time. They will have their bags in the dining hall and parents are invited to go to the dining hall at 3:30pm to meet their child(ren).
The children have now really settled into their daily routine for the week. They are enjoying the freedom that the centre provides, enjoying spending time with the different animals on site and looking forward to the different activities. Some of the activities they've done include:
Mega bowl Tournament - Children had a fantastic time working collaboratively in groups to complete a series of exciting team challenges in order to win the centre’s Megabowl trophy.
Letter writing- Children couldn’t wait to share their incredible experiences at the centre so far with their adults at home. They had the opportunity of sharing these exciting experiences through the letters they wrote to their adults.
Wall climbing- The children climbed a wall set in the grounds using a series of ridges to help them get to the top. A number of the children conquered their fear of heights and did really well.
Boat racing on the river!
Day1- Children enjoyed a site tour of the centre and proceeded to their first activities which were problem solving and shelter building.
Children worked collaboratively to solve a variety of real life problems during this activity and they also developed their communication and problem solving skills whilst completing these exciting challenges.
The children have enjoyed the first few days of their residential trip despite some unfavourable weather. It has not got spirits down. On the first day the children enjoyed visiting the Royal Air Force museum in Cosford where they got to see a variety of planes but the real point of excitement was the 4D aeroplane simulator.
On the second, the children spent the day at Bliss Hill Victorian town. After changing their pounds for shillings they were able to explore the Victorian life in all it's entities. They were able to put their feet into the shoes of Victorian Children as they manufactured bricks in a traditional factory of the era. We all enjoyed free time in the evening back at Cloverly Hall.
More updates to come later in the week.
