Chaffinch Residential Trip

We returned safely from our fantastic residential at PGL in Dorset. After a long journey we reached the coast, which was bathed in sun. Our afternoon started with the Giant Swing, followed by the Tunnels. In the evening we went to the shop, watched a DVD and settled into our rooms. Overall a good first night's sleep was had by all. The following day was colder, but sunny. We started with low ropes. Do not be deceived! The children on the ropes have their eyes closed and are relying on the rest of the class to guide them and catch them if necessary. A massive step forward in trust amongst the class. This was followed by the zip line, lunch, aeroball and finally abseiling. All these tasks took a massive amount of courage for some children. The following day was an early start as we needed to pack up and move out of our rooms. Unfortunately the weather was less kind, especially for Jacob's ladder, which was a challenge in the rain and wind. We finished our time with archery.

I am so proud of all the class, who showed determination to overcome fears, kindness with supporting each other and for some managing to be away from home for the first time. The photos are just a small sample of the many photos we took. My thanks to Mrs Lee, Mr McClimont and Mr Reed for all their support and help in making this a successful trip.
