Kingswood 2017


Monday 26th June 2017


After a long and arduous journey on a coach fit for the Queen, the children arrived excited, happy and eager ready for the afternoon of activities. A quick tour of the site was followed by the first challenge (and possibly the most difficult) of making their beds! We saw some interesting techniques, but teamwork and perseverance saw them all fit for a good nights sleep. Dinner was next and they all scoffed down delicious lasagne and chicken ready for their first activity, which was archery. All of the children had zero'd in to the target and showed skills worthy of a place in Robin Hood's band of merry men! After Archery it was time for scrap bottle rockets. Using all of their expertise from the space day, they managed to keep their water balloon shaped astronauts alive and earned the privilege of bursting them over the instructor’s head! A quick cup of cocoa before bed and it was time to rest and dream about tomorrow’s exciting activities.


Tuesday 27th June


Having slept well and feeling refreshed the children started the day with go-karting and were all speeding around the track, although they were not quite ready to be let loose on the roads! However, there were a few budding Nigel Mansells! After go-karts was the leap of faith, in which the children all challenged themselves and had a great time encouraging each other- even Miss Walker! Then the rain came, but didn't dampen the children's spirits, and after night line where the blind led the blind around an assault course, it was time for caving- the driest place on the site! The children found out all about wartime defences and many faced their fears of the dark and small spaces. A delicious roast dinner filled them up ready for low ropes and disco, where the children and staff cut some shapes. The last full day has been excellent and the children have been a credit to themselves and the school. Now their thoughts turn to packing up and coming home having had a truly memorable time here.
