Year 5&6 Residential Updates

Wednesday 4th October


After a long journey through some horrendous traffic, we arrived safely at the Pioneer Centre. Everyone is currently settling in and will be jumping into their first activity shortly.


We have settled in beautifully. Abseiling and zip wire was our first activity which we all thoroughly enjoyed and are all feeling proud of our achievements. Dinner soon and then onto the next activity. Weather is dry!

We ended the evening with a campfire!

Thursday 5th October


We all slept well and are looking forward to our day’s activities. Slight drizzle today – fingers crossed the weather clears up! 


We are on our first activities this morning. Abseiling, high wire and archery. This afternoon we will be building rafts and testing them. 


The morning activities are done and we are off to lunch. We had some completing the leap of faith this morning and we have some who managed to climb to the top of the tower!


We have had a very wet afternoon building our own rafts and testing them on the water. Some people fell in but that did not stop us all from having a great time. We have also been caving and learning archery and tonight we will enjoy the tuck shop and movie night... 

Friday 6th October


We have woken on our last day to a dry but cloudy day. We have packed and enjoyed our last breakfast here. We are now completing our final activities before we say goodbye to the Pioneer Centre and begin our journey home. Our aim is to be home for the end of the school day but we will update the school as we travel.
