From Wednesday 25th until Friday 28th
June, the Junior Forms had an amazing residential experience at Ravenstor near
Seventy three pupils and their teachers headed off for a
whole range of mental and physical challenges ranging from an extended walk to
learn about the flora, fauna and rocks; shelter building with fires to toast
marshmallows woodland arts and crafts, a disco, archery, team challenges, egg
rockets and so much more.
Here are some snippets from the children in their written
We arrived and headed off for a walk to discover the
area. The weather was boiling hot, and after lunch we found a really slippery
hill to slide down. Jack B.
In the evening we went into the disco, looking fabulous! We
danced around the room listening to great music. We even did a very, very
long conga which was so huge that we had to go outside !! Flora K.
The disco was amazing; if you saw Mrs Corner and Miss Flack
dancing you would fall to the ground laughing. Rosie W.
We awoke, had a taste-bud popping breakfast, before we
started on the first of the day’s activities (which for us was bush
craft) Louis G.
In the den building I worked with Mr.Robinson, Mrs Corner
and eight children. Our den was not only cosy, but we could all fit in and we
won the judging Ursula-Marie H.
When we got back we discovered how mouth-numbingly good the
food was. James C.
I just want to say thank you to the teachers for taking us,
I was overwhelmed by it all and sad when it ended. I will always have amazing memories
of Ravenstor. Arabella G.
