Yr 6 Residential

Manor Adventure - Wales

It was both an honour and a privilege to share such wonderful memory making with our Y6 on their recent residential visit to Abernant Lake Hotel, Manor Adventure in Wales. The children were an absolute credit and consistently demonstrated our school values of community, compassion, respect and endurance; whilst also striving achieve their own personal bests. 

There were many activities which stretched and challenged the children to use their initiative, self-challenge, be brave and move out of their comfort zone to tackle new activities whilst also juggling the experience of being away from home for a period of time. With the benefit of our Facebook page, we were able to share photos daily with our parents which, for many, was both reassuring and good to see what we were all up to.

This trip was the most exciting trip that year 6 has ever been on. It was a four-hour drive to Manor Adventure, but we had to stop half way to eat our lunch at Cardiff Gate Services. After we had eaten our lunch, we hopped back on the coach and continued our journey. When we arrived, we were shown our dormitories and told who we would be sharing with. There was a separate code for each room, which we were responsible for. After we got our rooms, we went back outside to be sorted into groups; there were four groups. After that, we went to do an activity in our groups, such as orienteering, obstacle course, low ropes and fencing. When our activities finished, we met in the Green Room for dinner – the food was delicious! After dinner we had another activity, and on the first evening we went on a fun walk in the dark, which exhausted everyone for the first night. In the morning, like every morning, we were up early for breakfast – a full English! We then started our activities for the day and this ranged from water sports to team-building. Each day followed this schedule and we really got into Year 6 Residential Trip a good routine. All the activities were fun, but the favourites were rock climbing, the zip-line and the water activities, such as kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. On Thursday night, we even had a disco, which was so much fun! Our last day was spent on the last of our activities and packing before we began the long journey home. We really enjoyed our time on the residential and would love to go back. Reported by Laurina, Zack, Caian and Connor N
