Y5 residential group 2 day 1

Wednesday 25th May | 11 comments

It has been a successful first day. The train journey worked well and they arrived on time. After lunch and unpacking, we went on the Waterfall Walk. We were all kitted out in full waterproofs but the weather wasn’t as bad as forecast and we had a great time. Despite the relative cold, almost all the children wanted to paddle and had great fun doing so. The main rule was: you can’t complain about being cold or wet afterwards if you choose to go into the water. This is the same rule that we will use when we go to Malham next half term. The children stuck to the rule and really enjoyed themselves.

This group eat well! We had home made tomato soup followed by pasta bake and lots of children had seconds. We spent some time reviewing what they had learnt in class prior to the trip and I was impressed by their knowledge of rocks, especially limestone. After that, we  went on an exciting night walk, getting back at 10.45. We then had rhubarb crumble and custard followed by hot chocolate.

The children have just gone to bed and we expect them to fall asleep quite quickly – they are shattered! Everyone seems happy and settled. Some children who are usually quite quiet and reserved have been really chatty. Seeing a different side to children and bringing out their character is part of the reason for residentials. So far, this group have been an absolute pleasure and I am looking forward to the next two days with them.
