New Friendships Formed as Year 6 Reflect on Lin’an Trip

21 april 2016

Last Friday, Year 6 children returned from Lin’an, tired but extremely happy after a wonderful week of activities and exciting experiences.

It really had been an outstanding week as the children represented their school with pride and their instructors said they were one of the best groups they had ever worked with.

Many new friendships had been made, many fears conquered and many things experienced for the first time. Whether it was making the leap of faith (something genuinely scary even for adults!), riding a bike for the first time or climbing a steep rock face, the children approached each challenge with the same determination and good will. They supported one another, cheering their team mates through every activity and reassuring them when they found it tough.

Undoubtedly the evening activities were another highlight. ‘Manhunt’ involved the teams hunting through the dark grounds to find their teachers and instructors who were hidden and then completing a challenge to further develop their teamwork. ‘Leave Nothing Behind’ was another excellent activity where the children learnt about the importance of treating the countryside with respect. They then demonstrated their understanding by performing a range of short plays which were hilarious.  

All in all, it was a wonderful week and every child came home with a different story. Some picked mountain biking through the bamboo-lined lanes as a highlight, others decided learning how to farm organically was their favourite. However, whatever they chose as their highlight, every child came home knowing they could feel proud of what they had achieved.
