2019 Residential

Monday 1st July 2019 

Year 4 arrived safe and sound and had a lovely lunch before embarking on an orienteering adventure around the grounds of the hall. Only one group got lost! We then settled into our new rooms and went for our evening meal. Then we completed the bottle rocket challenge. After a quick play time, we settled into bed. 

Tuesday 2nd July 2019 

Some of us overslept this morning and were nearly late for breakfast! We got ready for our epic hill climb. We climbed to the top of Bunster Hill. In the afternoon, we took part in lots of different art activities around the site. After tea, we made bead dragonflies and then had playtime before bed. 

Wednesday 3rd July 2019

 Today, nobody was up bright and early. We had to pack away our luggage and strip the beds. Breakfast was again very nice. We worked as teams to complete different challenges. Some were very tricky. We enjoyed our lunch on the field and our trip to the shop before getting on the coach to come home.
