Year 5 Trip to Kingswood - October 2019


Our last day at Kingswood.  We are looking forward to Aeroball and Archery and then seeing you all this evening; tired but happy!  Have a super half-term.

Aeroball - Very exciting but not easy to capture on film!


We have enjoyed a super day with excellent weather and brilliant activities.  We have been fed well and are looking forward to our disco this evening.


After an exciting coach trip playing "How long can you keep a Fruit Pastille in your mouth without chewing it?", we arrived in West Runton and were helped off the coach by the Kingswood team. Then we were taken to a room to eat our lunch. Next, we were shown to our dorms in Sandringham house and the fun of bed making began.

Our Activity leader, Brandon, gave us a site tour and then we split for our first activity. Some of us flew down the giant zipwire, while others braved the climbing wall.

After continuing with bed making, we then indulged in a massive dinner - Italian style - followed by a dough-nut.

Evening entertainment consisted of singing amusing songs around the campfire under a star-lit sky, with a hot chocolate and marshmallows. Then, back to our dorms for optional showers and story time.

A great first day and hardly any soggyness!


(In case you were wondering, The Fruit Pastille competition was won by MD and Mrs Taylor with a time of over 38 minutes!)
