Kingswood Day 2

Friday, November 15, 2019

A busy second day for Year 5 at Kingswood with plenty of activities even though the weather was not really on our side.  We started the day with an obstacle course and the zip wire followed by Nightline (blindfolded), which proved to be very muddy and wet!  After lunch we had archery, bush craft and Jacob’s Ladder.  The children persevered all day in some very hard conditions and came out the other end smiling.

What a fantastic  start to our residential visit to Kingswood.  We have been really busy Buggy Building, Zip Wiring and attempting the Obstacle Course this afternoon.  Everyone had a fantastic time and even managed to overcome some of their fears.

We have started our topic about plastic pollution and have started to learn about how it impacts sea life.  Today we have begun designing pieces of artwork to create a display to convince people to lessen their plastic usage.  In Math we have been learning to convert measurements and in English we have been learning about persuasive writing, ready to write some important letters.

Day 1 – Wednesday 14th November

We have had a great first day at Kingswood in Staffordshire.  We enjoyed exploring the centre and setting up our dormitories.  Dinner was fantastic (lasagne, vegetarian toad in the hole or spring rolls) and we took part in three evening activities – Bushcraft, Nightline and Trail of Mystery.  We are now tired and ready for a good nights sleep so that we are ready for a full on day tomorrow.
