This promises to be a very special evening of live theatre."

Year 6 Adventure Holiday: Robinwood

 

On Monday, 15th May, forty very excited Year 6 children set off for three action-packed days at Robinwood in Todmorden.  This was to be a fitting reward after a hard year working towards the SATs.

We arrived at Robinwood in drizzle and indeed the forecast was for it to rain throughout our visit.  Nevertheless, the children's spirits were in no way dampened as they walked the final mile to the centre.

Children spent the next few days learning valuable life-skills such as cooperation, team work, communication and resilience through a mixture of indoor and outdoor exhilarating activities.  Their enthusiastic and well-qualified group leaders encouraged them to try activities such as The Giant Swing, Caving, The Trapeze, Knight's Quest and even the fabled Piranha Pool, to name a few.

They loved it!  The expertise of the staff at Robinwood ensure that the children are gently challenged but no one is forced beyond their comfort zone.

The time went very quickly and all too soon, they were back on the coach, tired but happy and ready to relate their adventure to their parents.

It is testament to Robinwood that the children are still talking about it weeks later and are moaning that it's not fair that the current Year 5 will get to go to their brand new flagship centre next year.  I can't wait - and I'm a teacher!
