KS1 Residential- Evening Activities

Back at school, Year 1 and 2 had lots of fun setting up their tents and making it cosy. We then enjoyed a yummy BBQ, cooked by Mr.

After tea, the children enjoyed a game of football rounders followed by a visit to the park.

Back in the hall (teeth brushed and pj’s on) the children were ready for a bed time story, before heading to their tents for a good nights sleep (the bit they wanted to do all day).

Thank you to all the staff and volunteers for helping out, the parents for supporting this event and of course the children who did nothing but make us proud. ☺️

KS1 Residential- Day activities

  • Wow! What an amazing time we had on our first KS1 sleepover.

In the morning we had Nursery to Year 2 children completing a range of problem solving/ outdoor learning activities. This included filling a bucket with a leaking container, getting through a giant spider web, bug hunts, making bird feeders plus much more.

After a relaxed picnic lunch on the field, Reception to Year 2 headed to Eden Rock. At Eden Rock the children embraced new challenges and some overcame fears. The instructors were fantastic and had the children very excited and wanting to try more.

As you can see many of us have chosen to make Egyptian pyramids however we have all taken a different approach to making them and we have used a wide range of different materials and techniques to build. Including, using egg boxes, Lego, cardboard templates and even sugar cubes!

Swimming Festival

Today we took 15 swimmers from Class 2 and 3 to Penrith Leisure Centre. The team put in a fantastic effort, with many firsts in their heats. But what made us proud was the amazing sportsmanship that they showed to other schools, as well as their own. We stayed till the very end making sure everyone was cheered on. We definitely deserve a 1St for our support! 😊

Day 2…

Day 2…. This morning we woke
the teachers up at around 6.30am and by 7.30am we were all ready for breakfast. We had a choice of cereals and toast and all the usual condiments. 
We made our own lunch which consisted of a wrap with various fillings. A lot of the children like cucumber it turns out!!

We went on our walk up to Rydal caves. When we were there we stood in awe as we imagined who may have lived in a cave like this. We walked along to Loughrigg Terrace where we had lunch. 


Upon our return we prepared for our three afternoon activities. This involved exploring Rydal Hall a little bit more. 

Mr D cooked our bolognaise and pasta made from all fresh ingredients including: corgette, pepper, tomatoes, onion and garlic. The best compliment was paid by all the children eating every thing on their plate. 

 

Before the bonfire we had a few moments to tidy our bedrooms. They are rather messy!! 

We finished the day with a camp fire and songs. What a great day we’ve had. 
We are all looking forward to seeing you tomorrow afternoon. 

Night night. Sleep tight X
