Year 5 Trip to Robinwood

IMG_7172Year 5 have finally recovered from their exciting three days at Robinwood!

The children had a fantastic time and threw themselves whole-heartedly into each activity.  We were extremely impressed with how the children conducted themselves and they were a real credit to our school.

The teamwork that they demonstrated was amazing and they really supported each other throughout.  I’m sure that the children have told you about all of the fun they had and you can now see it for yourselves through the photo gallery.

We would like to thank the children for being so wonderful and making the visit so enjoyable.
