                Testwood Lakes 5th June 2019


Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their recent trip to Testwood Lakes with a few children saying' This was the best trip ever!'.


The day started with some pond dipping. Children each got given a net and then classification guides to recognise and name what they caught. This was followed by a meadow walk. Children swept the long grass and caught crickets and grasshoppers as well as many other minibeasts.

After lunch we all went on a forest walk. Children went on a minibeast hunt in the woods. We found centipedes, millipedes, spiders, woodlice, ants, worms, beetles and lots of other minibeasts. They even got to see inside the wormery!  
This was an excellent trip that gave the children some hands on experience for their science topic of minibeasts and habitats. All children were extremely well behaved and were recognised by centre staff as some of the most engaged and polite children.


Well done Year 2!

Year 6 ~ Knapp House Residential 

June 2018


Miss Wilson and Mr Lodge are extremely proud of the children who attended our recent residential to Knapp House. The children demonstrated great resilience, communication and manners throughout the visit. It was unbelievable to see children trying things they have never done before, despite being fearful. The children were positive each day and even made new friends with the Holy Family children who joined us on the trip.
We were able to enjoy:
  • Tree climbing
  • Abseiling
  • Crate stacking
  • Assault course
  • Pedal carts
  • Paddle boats
  • Coastal walks
  • Ringo rides
  • Surfing and body boarding
We hope you enjoy looking through some of the photos below. They really don't do justice to the amazing experience enjoyed by all children (and staff!).
