What a fantastic (and muddy) day Year 6 had on their final trip with St Eanswythe’s!
We started the day off in two groups. One group played Nerf Tag and the other played Battlezone archery. In Battlezone archery, the children had to work as a team to protect base camp. They had lots of obstacles to hide behind and to try and shoot the enemy! In Nerf Tag, again lots of team work was required, especially in the game ‘Capture the Flag’ whereby the opposing team had to quickly get the flag from the opposing base camp, without being shot!
After a little lunch stop, the children enjoyed playing in the Amphitheatre. In our afternoon session the children took part in an MT/PT course. This was absolutely fantastic! The children enjoyed crawling through muddy trenches, climbing over tyres and even had a go at Kent’s tallest vertical wall. This was extremely tricky and only two children managed to get to the top! Keiran, our MT/PT instructor had previously worked in the Marines for 17 years. He adopted this militant style of training with the children which they thoroughly enjoyed. Year 6 even beat the record of a timed challenge because of their hard work and unity throughout. It was lovely to see the children helping and encouraging each other throughout the course! They slid down muddy banks (sorry grown up’s about the state of the clothes!), crawled through tunnels and took part in a balancing course.
As you can see from the pictures, it was a brilliant way to end their time in Year 6. The behaviour, as always, was outstanding. It is because of this impeccable behaviour that the children are a pleasure to take out on trips; for that they should be commended.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support throughout such a tricky year. It has been a pleasure to work with your children in Year 6.
