Kingswood Trip 2018 – Year 6
Tuesday 19th June
After a waking up at stupid o’clock and devouring a full english breakfast, the morning’s activities commenced: zip wire, problem solving and outdoor laser. A hearty lunch set us up for 3G swing, nightline and chariots. By this point, the children were regretting getting up 3 hours before breakfast!! Mini Olympics rounded off an exhausting day and we all slept like logs.

Day three consisted of high equilibrium, fire lighting, obstacle challenge, rock climbing, orienterring and aeroball! Plenty of sun cream was needed as it was a beautifully scorching day. Fears were confronted and many knees turned to jelly, but every single child made us proud with their attitudes and efforts.
