Year 5's adapt and overcome at Kingswood

Our year 5's took on some exciting challenges by journeying to Kingswood on Friday the 21st September. Contending not only with everything the severe stormy weather could throw at them, they took on the activities with great enthusiasm, putting all their energy into having fun. School trips like these provide fanatastic opportunities to teach children independence, resilience and the value of team work. It was great to see the children working and having fun together, getting to know themselves and each other better. More photos on our year 5 web page.
