A big welcome back to our Y6 pupils who enjoyed their trip to Downe for the last 3 days!

I went to visit them on Monday and barely had the chance to speak with anyone as the sheer number of activities and the obvious levels of fun and excitement meant that all the pupils were focused on the zip-wire, bush-craft, fire-making, high-ropes, climbing and many more. It was simply fantastic to see everyone having so much fun!

We’re now looking in to what we can put together, not only for our Y5s, but also for other year groups so that they get to experience the magic and pure joy of learning outside.

Huge thanks to all the staff who accompanied the group, kept them safe and ensured that they all had a fantastic time. That’s real dedication – Miss Dunn even slept in her tent!
