In November, Year 5 went on an action-packed residential to PGL Liddington. The pupils got stuck straight into activities and over the three days, the rope-based activities proved a real highlight, including: abseiling, climbing, Jacob’s Ladder and the giant swing. On top of these dizzyingly fun activities, they also got to build and ride on a buggy, play ‘aeroball’ (a mix of trampolining and basketball), build dens and take part in an assault course, which some children managed to navigate their way through with a full cup of water – impressive! Needless to say, with all that energy spent on the fantastic activities, the pupils slept very well in their dorms and even had to be woken up by the teachers on the last morning! Throughout the trip, Year 5 behaved brilliantly. They supported peers when a task was challenging, they helped out and they all demonstrated resilience. The children were also delighted to see the teachers getting involved too and cheered them on.
