Ranby pupils enjoyed some fun-filled residential trips during these last weeks of term with the pupils enjoying learning new skills and plenty of teamwork activities.
Year 4 travelled to Whitby for a two night Youth Hostel experience. They visited the Sea Life Centre in Scarborough, investigated rock pools and created beach art in Robin Hood’s Bay and enjoyed eating plenty of ice-cream! One pupil said, ‘I enjoyed all of it. It was the best trip ever and I would love to go again!’
Meanwhile at Cholmondeley Castle, Year 6 had turned their attention to bushcraft! During 5 days of survival-based activities, including shelter building, camouflaging and archery, the pupils developed resilience and built on their teamwork skills, often putting them very much out of their comfort zones.
An overnight camp to Perlethorpe Environmental Centre was a chance for Year 3 pupils to build dens in the woods and challenge themselves to a blindfold assault course, amongst many other team building activities. Two pupils commented: “The best bit was working with my friends” and “I liked the water challenge activity; we lost lives and had to go back to the start.”.
