Residential Trips

Calshot Day Two


What a fantastic day!  A day full of excitement, challenge, smiles and laughter.  We are very proud of the way in which everyone is working together as team and it has been lovely to see so much support for each other.  Well done to everyone!

Calshot Day 1


Well done to everyone as we draw a close to Day 1.  It has been great to see the way in which the children have been demonstrating the values of courage, trust and friendship when tackling their first round of activities today!

Day Four Little Canada 


Waka Waka was the theme for the day! Greeted by dancing children this morning upon wake up, Year 6 leapt out of bed with enthusiasm for a day of activities!


Today’s sessions were all based on height! From the exhilaration of the Giant Swing in the morning, the tricky Vertical Challenge and even the most feared Trapeze! Year 6 (and teachers!) showed resilience and perseverance; conquering their fears and feeling very pleased with their achievements.


Tonight was a mix of an early night for some tired campers (please note that is why the group looks a little smaller in the picture this evening) and a quiz show for the rest.  


We have had an amazing week away and we are all looking forward to being back at St Bede tomorrow.


See you soon!

Day 3 Little Canada 


After a lively rendition of 'baby shark' as today's alarm clock, Year 6 managed to drag themselves out of bed for another wonderful breakfast, ready for the day's activities. Today we had an amazing array of sessions, the most popular being Dragon Boat Racing! We rowed, raced and showed our fantastic teamwork on the water! We also zipped wired across the PGL site, solved some rather tricky challenges in Problem Solving and displayed sharp shooting accuracy with Archery! 


This evening consisted of a game of 'Ambush', hiding in teams around the site (a big game of hide and seek!) a firm favourite! 


Another fantastic day awaits tomorrow!  

Little Canada Day 2


After a restful night’s sleep in our accommodation and a hearty breakfast, Year 6 were ready for a full day of activities!  


Climbing the huge rungs of Jacob’s ladder, mastering the low ropes course, learning to survive in the wilderness, applying our Year 6 Geography skills in orienteering and finally the ever-changing weather climate in sensory trail! A few muddy children to say the least!


Our evening was followed by a live-action game of Cluedo to solve the secret mystery of PGL!  


All very excited for day three!  

Day One Little Canada. 


What a fantastic first day at Little Canada!  After waving off St Bede and a short coach journey down to Southampton, Year 6 enjoyed a smooth ferry ride across to the Isle of Wight.


After getting very excited at seeing our accommodation we enjoyed a tour of the site and an array of culinary delights for dinner. We then sang songs and listened to some tall tales around the campfire.


All very excited for what day two will bring! 

Little Canada Day 1


Well the first day is now over and what a great day it has been!  We all enjoyed our special campfire this evening and singing songs to “Larry” the campfire.  It has been great to see the way in which children have been supporting each other and working as a team!


We will use a different camera tomorrow and hopefully the picture quality will be much improved!


So lights out and we are all looking forward to Tuesday’s activities!
