Last week, 41 Year 6 pupils got on a bus and travelled to Robin Wood activity centre for their jam-packed 3 day residential. It took them about 1 hour on the coach to get there. But when they arrived they couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
First, they had to walk 20 minutes just to get to the centre! Once they arrived they were shown to their dorms and had 20 minutes to unpack their things and get their kit bags ready for when they had a shower or after they got out of the piranha pool. After that, they were sorted into their groups including: Whirlpool,Ocean,Wave and Iceberg.Then were given all the activities that they would be doing over the next 3 days,which were:Giant swing(basically a bigger version of a swing that went much higher!), the Zipline, Piranha pool, Nightline, Knights Quest, Raft Building, Canoeing, Dungeon Of Doom, Caving, Crate Challenge, Trapeze and Rock Climbing! Our favourite activities were: Giant Swing and Zipline!
The food was delicious and the dorms were very comfy to get to sleep in. We had our food in a beautiful dining room. Then for our sandwiches we went into the sports hall and got to choose what filling we wanted and chose a packet of crisps along with a blue ribbon biscuit.
Not to mention ,on the last night it was Megan’s birthday so, we got a piece of her tasty cake along with hot chocolate and a tune into Robin Wood Radio and listened to each group’s star of the day and why they chose them!
We all had an amazing time and made a lot of memories before we left!
