Y4 Outdoor Pursuits Trip

Each year we endeavour to take our Year 4s away on a three night residential trip to Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire. This is a council owned and run facility that caters especially for school residential trips. Complete with bunk-bed dormitories, onsite catering facilities and access to fantastic outdoor activities, this is the highlight of many of our pupils' year. 

This residential trip not only allows children their first taste of independence away from family, in a safe and secure setting, but it also encourages them to develop their confidence and resilience as they try new sports and work together as a team - oh and did we mention 'hide and seek' in the cellars with torches and hot chocolate feasts.

During the trip the children will build a land buggy out of ropes, barrels and wood, they will go kayaking, pond dipping and practice their archery skills alongside many other adventures.
