Event - Year 6 Boreatton Park Residential

26 September 2022

On the 26th September 2022, Year 6 went on a residential to Boreatton Park.

When we arrived, we were welcomed with a tour, by Rosie and Connor (our instructors). At the end of our tour, we were shown our accommodation – we were staying in cabins.

We all unpacked and then went for our first dinner. The food was edible but the cooks seemed to have a particular fascination with sausages!

Bed time was around 9:30pm and the teachers did lights out for 10pm.

The next day, the activities really began and we were put into groups and given a teacher each. There were so many activities, including: abseiling, rock climbing, trapeze, kayaking, high ropes, aeroball and a disco. Trapeze appeared to be the most popular activity. We had to climb to the top of a lofty pole and stand on a sturdy platform. We then had to jump and reach for a metal bar. We all flew through the air, landing safely on the ground.

Residential truly was the best week ever!

We would like to thank Mrs Whitehead and Mrs Stonehill for organising the trip. We would also like to thank Miss Wood, Miss MacPhee, Miss Williams, Miss Luckett, Mrs Moorehouse and Mrs Roberts for accompanying us and making the trip so enjoyable.
