Ok, so we've all possibly unpacked and managed to recoup some sleep now, so I thought it time to download the GoPro footage and have fun compiling a video (it takes ages so bear with me) but also to download the photos and post a blog about the Yr 6's amazing trip! Some interesting points about this trip... Tuesday... a [...]
This video really does capture everything fun about our year 6's residential to London. The children were Kind, Curious, Confident, a Community, Adventurous and certainly Ambitious too. It was also a delight to have taken them and help them through the week!
We’re all back safely, exhausted but happy, with lots of special memories made before we all go off on our next adventure to “big school”. To our parents: your children have been absolutely amazing and should be really, really proud of themselves.

We left the lodge in drizzle but arrived (it's nextdoor!) to blazing sun! Climbing first and some holds surprised us with [...]
Got to be quick here... They'll be up at the crack of dawn and I'll be shattered if I don't. We met at the train station, which confused one or two since we were off in a minibus. Emma Trueman took some excellent Manchester Band style photos before we set off too, thanks. There was the M5, M4, M25 & [...]
I wasn't going to do a Facebook LIVE assembly... and it wouldn't have been a good enough job to have recorded it live... so I've created our Leaver's Assembly video before the event and posted it to YouTube. It always plays funny in the blog (not quite fitting on the page) so do click in the bottom right hand corner [...]
