Kingswood Residential Trip 2016

Tuesday 22nd – Thursday 24th March

Tuesday 22nd March:


56 very excited Year 5 children arrived at Kingswood at 4pm today – and what a lot of exciting things we’ve been up to already!

Wednesday 23rd March:

Up bright and early at 6:45am and straight to breakfast, then a full day packed with various activities.  Team Tech, Aeroball & Marble Motion for those who didn’t do it yesterday PLUS Laser Tag, Outdoor Climb, Aerial Runway & Nightline for EVERYONE! Still had energy for a disco to finish the day off – finally back to bed at 10pm.  A long, busy day – filled with smiles, laughter and some amazing personal achievements.  The adults are so proud of all our wonderful children.

Thursday 24th March:

Another early start for breakfast at 7:15am! Then manic packing (“Whose pants are these?”) and stripping of beds before the final two activities of our stay – Team Challenge & Abseiling.

Time to pose for one final group picture before lunch – then home to chill!
