By Chris Rees, Year 4 Teacher

Throughout their time on their residential, the teachers saw the children grow in confidence as well as mature as individuals. Mr Stevens added: “The residential provided the children with the chance to complete activities in a safe but challenging environment. We certainly see the children grow up in such a short time as they have to deal with different situations, develop problem solving skills and learnt to become more independent!” 

One particular memory that will stand out, was how one of the groups were becoming frustrated when trying to build a shelter and the team could not find a solution. However, through perseverance and resilience, the children kept trying until eventually their team work skills paid off. One child reflected: “It was so difficult when we were trying to work together and build the shelter, I just wanted to give up! But my friends helped me to find the confidence to keep trying and eventually we did it. In future, I will remember this moment and always try, even if it is difficult!”

All in all, going away from home and out into a completely different environment has provided the children with experiences that they can cherish for a lifetime. It is safe to say that all of the children (and even staff!) are now inspired to spend more time in the great outdoors and built the confidence to tackle new challenges head on!
