Each autumn term the year 6 children are invited to attend a four night residential trip to Stubbington Study Centre. The children take part in a variety of outdoor educational activities where they will learn about the local environment and the animals and plants in the ground. All of the activities are aimed at Key Stage 2 children. There are many activities that encourage teamwork and they will also develop independence skills as they learn how to be responsible and organise themselves.
The staff at the centre along with the schools year 6 teaching and support staff lead the activities and will be around to supervise the children during meal times and showers. The staff from the school sleep in accommodation next to the children’s sleeping quarters.
On Monday 27th September 2021, Year 6 headed down to the Stubbington Study Centre for their much-anticipated residential week! The children participated in a wide range of team building activities, alongside an exciting sequence of sessions focusing on evolution and adaptation (our science focus for the Autumn term). The children were an absolute credit to the school, demonstrating what a conscientious, well-mannered, and mature bunch they are rapidly becoming. From fossil hunting on the beach to badger watching in the hide, there was something for everyone. Well done Year 6 - we are very proud of you!
