Robinwood 2019

On 6th March Year 5 travelled all the way to Todmorden to experience the excitement of Robinwood.  We were very lucky with the weather and we only had a few showers while we were there.  The highlights were once again Piranha pool and Giant swing.  The children all had an amazing time and were a joy to take away.

Cliffe House 2018

On the 16th May, Year 4 went to Cliffe House for 3 days.  We were so lucky this year, the weather was just right, dry every day and warm enough for Mr Booth and Mr Penson to wear their shorts.  Once again the Adventurous team provided us with some great activities which the children thoroughly enjoyed.  Mr Penson provided the children with a blazing fire to toast marshmallows one of the nights and some talented children impressed the judges at the talent contest on Wednesday night.  Well done to all the Year 4 children making the residential such a success.

Fanwood 2014

On the 5th June 2014, Year 4 went to Fanwood.  We had a great time participating in many wonderful activities.  The activities included crate stacking, climbing, grass sledging/turf boarding, caving, low ropes, archery and nightline.  We also made a huge campfire and sang some songs.  All the children were fantastic (apart from waking up slightly too early) and loved every minute of it.  Year 4 would like to thank the Kirklees adventurous team for all these great activities and for cooking the amazing tea.
