It is well known that residential courses organised by schools are becoming increasingly invaluable as part of the National Curriculum. Indeed, the Government has placed on record the beneficial effects on a child’s progress that such courses provide. They offer new and exciting challenges and by living with their peers and working together in a team environment, help develop independence, confidence and an ability to recognise strengths and weaknesses in a constructive way.
The value of giving children the opportunity to try out new activities cannot be underestimated. From the physically weak to the strong, from slow to fast learners, everyone learns to respect and value each other’s ability and their own.
To enhance this experience, on Wednesday 12th February 2020 till Friday 14th February 2020, Year 6 children went on their residential trip to Manor adventure park in Norfolk Lakes.
They thoroughly enjoyed the experience along with taking part in numerous activities which included: Climbing, Canoeing, kayaking, Fencing, Archery, raft building and many more.
They also had the opportunity to visit Thetford Forest and pay their homage to the last of the Sikh prince’s grave- Maharajah Dilip Singh- which was truly a humbling experience.
