Kingswood Day 2 – 13th Oct

After our first successful night at Kingswood, we were up bright and early for showers and dorm inspections -there weren’t too many sweet wraps on show! We were spoilt for choice for breakfast and we definitely filled our boots.

Today we all completed seven amazing activities which included zip wire, areoball, problem solving, leap of faith, outdoor laser, fencing, nightline, 3G swing, bouldering, climbing all rounded off with a groovy disco. All the staff have been so impressed with all the children’s determination and teamwork to conquer their fears.  There are certainly plenty of names in the raffle this evening.

In preparation for the disco Miss Reeve and Miss Fraser turned the girl’s corridor into a mobile hair dressers whilst the boys took a more relaxed approach.

The disco was the highlight of the evening, we don’t know how Ainsley had the energy to keep dancing all night and really impressed us with his dance moves. The Macarena and Gangnam Style where just a few of the Strictly dances on show this evening. Mr Balmer entertained us with his silly dancing and many tried to copy his unique style.

After an exhausting day we rounded the evening off with hot chocolate and headed to our beds for a good night’s sleep in preparation for tomorrows activities.

Kingswood Day 1Monday 12th Oct

We have all arrived safe and sound in the glorious sunshine! Our first challenge was unpacking and making our beds – which we would love to demonstrate to you at home. Once we got our bearings and listened to the safety talk, it was off to our first activities. These included climbing, bouldering, nightline, 3G swing, outdoor laser, areoball, leap of faith, fencing and zip wire. Many of these activities challenged our confidence however we were encouraged to push through our comfort zone and we feel very proud of our achievements.

After we completed three of the above activities, we were definitely ready for our tea. We loved the delicious variety of the food! We don’t know how she managed it but Mrs Crowder got the biggest piece of cake!

After tea, we got top marks for our calm and effective fire drill practice. This was very appropriate as we then proceeded to our campfire where we had toasted marshmallows under the stars before coming back in to a warming hot chocolate and raffle prizes.

Animation project Year 5

Last term Year 5 started a new unit with Miss Mudd, we have been learning how to become professional stop motion animators. We have thought through some fantastic ideas for our animations such as… Monsters vs Aliens, The 2 awkward men, The story of the killer tiger and so much more. During the topic we have learnt numerous skills like putting in audio, voices, making titles etc One group, Sohale,Adam and Keelan , created and added a faboulous advert using iMovie, they embedded it in their animation.

We have really enjoyed making our animations because it has been fun and it seems like we are not working however we have learnt so much, we have found that our speaking and listening skills have improved due to the fact that if you don’t speak clearly then the microphone doesn’t pick up what you are saying. We have had to work well as a team and Miss Mudd said at the beginning that the best teams will have the better outcome and it will show in the films.


We would like to know what you enjoyed

most about it and what did you find


from Adam Sohale and Keelan!
