Children in Years 5 and 6 get the opportunity to go on a 3 night trip to France and visit the zoo, the 360 cinema at Arroumanches, the Bayeux Tapestry, a biscuit factory and take part in activities such as swimming, an evening disco and games on the beach.
Each year the children in Year 3 and Year 4 have the opportunity to spend a weekend at Marchants Hill. The children particpate in various outdoor challenges like abseiling, rock wall climbing, archery, challenge course, low ropes. Jacobs ladder, zip wire, mountain biking and fencing. Not only do they have the opportunity to do new things outside of their normal environment, they also develop confidence, learn to make healthy lifestyle choices and social skills associated with living with other people.

By Ellora (Year 5)
When 35 children from year five and six went to France, we all thought it was going to be a lovely time. We were right! We did so many lovely things like: going to biscuit and cheese factories, going to a zoo, making scrapbooks in our groups and lot of other lovely things. Five lovely teachers came along teachers came along with us and they were Miss Ah-moye, Mr Greenhough, Mrs Walker, Miss Speight and Miss Turner.
Everyone of us spoke some French whether it was asking for a postcard and stamp on the ferry, or asking for something in the hotel. The children all loved hearing the messages parents sent us on the blog. In the zoo, we watched a show about lemars and Miss Speight posted some pictures about that and that got all the parents’ attention. To conclude, we all had a lovely time in France.
