At Humberstone Junior Academy, year 6 had been working very hard for SATs. After all their hard work, 47 children went on the exciting trip to Ambleside. If you don’t know where Ambleside is, I’ll tell you! Ambleside is in the Lake District, Cumbria.
After a 4 hour coach journey, pupils and teachers alike were very hungry but first the luggage had to be put into the rooms! Once everyone was unpacked, they went outside to have lunch. Then the children were free to do what ever they wanted to a certain extent. At dinner there was a choice of 3 meals. After a long day everyone was ready for bed!
The next day was also very exciting! For breakfast the children had a choice of a full English or cereal. After breakfast it was time for the activities to take place. They were absailing, canoeing and kayaking or a geography day trip in the beautiful town of Ambleside. At night time it was a choice of 3 meals again and that was the same everynight.
Wednesday was the same as Tuesday but you did the other activities.
On Thursday, all 47 children and 5 adults went on a very long guided walk around a hill/small mountain. Everybody was extremely tired afterwards but the teachers bought everyone an ice cream. Then it was time for dinner and bed. Some people started packing so that they had less work to do the next morning.
On Friday morning they had breakfast and packed the rest of their belongings. Then they got on the coach and left off for Leicester. Their parents were waiting for them at school and they were allowed to take their children when a final head count had been done and all of the luggage was off the coach.
It’s not only yr6 that go on residential, yr4 and yr5 go on a 2 night and 3 day residential. We hope that everyone going on that residential have a brilliant and safe time! 🙂
