Through-out 4 days of the Year 6 residential in Hoi An last week, a lot of experiences and learning has taken place for your children. The words that keep being repeated are ‘team work and ‘cooperation’. Throughout the trip the children have had to work in their teams to complete tasks and challenges such as ‘The Scavenger Hunt’. This brilliant activity required the children to navigate their way around Hoi An using a map and local information to find well-known landmarks, use their negotiating skills to purchase five items on a strict budget and also find the answers to a range of local trivia. Not only was this great for confidence and team building but many children have said this has been their favourite activity.
Other activities this week have included beach team games – again the teams that worked well together were the most successful (but nobody stayed dry!) There was also time for some individual challenge with the abseiling, with many children conquering their fears to complete a 25m cliff or a 15m cave drop.
When you add in that only English has been spoken to the children this week, a visit to a local farm to have a go at some farming skills and this morning’s visit to a lantern and clay factory, this has been a very worthwhile and memorable experience.
I would like to thank all the Year 6 team and especially Ms Julie for organising such a fantastic trip and our guides, Phat Tyres, who have provided us with additional safety and also for their enthusiasm.
