Both Robins & Woodpeckers' classes wowed parents, family & friends at St. Mary's Church, Kingston, with their Christmas performance of 'The Inn Crowd' - singing catchy songs & acting out the story of the Nativity from the perspective of the animals in the stable.
Performing Arts teachers from Taunton School visited us for the afternoon - they worked with us to create a song & dance routine based on the 'Great Fire of London', which we later performed to the Robins' class.
Woodpeckers spent an action-packed week at Kilve, participating in a variety of activities, some of which we had never tried before; these included: rifle shooting, grass sledging, climbing wall, abseiling, stream walking, archery, mountain biking, low ropes and pond dipping. We also enjoyed: a pleasant walk to the beach to hunt for fossils and explore rock pools; a muddy walk on the Quantocks, where we worked together to build shelters; a night walk through the maze (some of us took the wrong turning!); and a morning of team-building games.
Not only were the activities amazing but the weather was favourable, the food was plentiful & delicious, the instructors were exceptional, the children were brilliantly behaved and the fresh air tired us all out. We can't wait for the next residential...!
