Year 5 Residential to Bridlington and The Deep

on May 11, 2017

This week we joined two other schools in our Academy Trust for a visit to Bridlington and a sleepover at The Deep. It was a fantastic opportunity for learning and making new friends.

Read on to find out what our year 5 children thought…
On Wednesday the 26th of April we (Year 5) went on an epic residential to The Deep. We were so excited to actually go. At first we went to Bridlington to have some fish and chips at a nice, cosy restaurant called JC’s restaurant it was absolutely scrumptious.
When we arrived at The Deep we received a tour from a lady named Linseys who took us to an area called “Cool Seas” which had all sorts of star fish, jelly fish, giant kelp and all sorts of amazing and beautiful creatures. After that we went to the prehistoric time line where we saw the massive jaws of a Megaladon. After the time line we went to the tropical seas there was a leopard shark and lots of small fish (some looked like Dory). Then we went to the “Endless Ocean” where we were all in complete awe of the grace that the sting rays, sharks and turtles they were so cute because they even smiled at me # adorable.

After that, we went to have supper and there was a cat fish what tried to eat our food it was funny. Then we went to make slime it was cool did you know slime is good for our body.

It ended a bit before we wanted to finish because the tide came in and washed some things to sea.
We particularly enjoyed seeing the potato grouper and, the name is by inspired by James’ favourite singers, the David Bowie Spider. When we did bowling James C came 3rd with 84 points, Thomas W came 1st with 101 points, Zak T came 3rd with 91 points and James ST came 1st with 102 points.
