Year 6 – Amethyst and Magenta

And the rest is still unwritten…

Now that was a busy week! Both Monday and Tuesday were filled with dress rehearsals, singing and even more singing, all leading up to Wednesday: our recording day. And what a day it was. Both classes worked extremely hard to nail every single one of their lines and to perform with vigour and that they …

Day 3- Memories made

After a much better night’s sleep, we were ready to face the sensory trail, zip line and climbing wall. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side at all this morning, really cold and extremely wet. Despite this, the children still gave the activities their absolute all and we could not be prouder of them. …

Day 2- What a day!

Fueled on a delicious 3 course breakfast, the children have worked in teams to build and race buggies. This was followed by an exhilarating ride on the giant swing, where the children (and teachers) overcame their fears. What an experience! Despite some wind and rain the children took to the water in canoes like the …

Day 1- Survivor, zip lining and climbing

What a day! All arrived safely and made good time. The children have all enjoyed settling into their rooms, tackling two activities and most of all the dinner. Currently participating in ‘wacky races’ as the sun sets on a beautiful evening here.

5 sleeps to go…

Even with the increasing levels of excitement due to our impending PGL trip, Year 6 have been working their socks off this week both in the classroom and on the archery range. We were lucky enough to get an extra PE session where the children got to try their hand at archery.  The children had a …
