Year 6 Highlights:
In Year 6, children look forward to participating in various exciting opportunities such as 'Bikeability Week', Samba and our residential trip to Hilltop Adventure Centre.
Year 6 will work incredibly hard to prepare for their SATs in May. In the Summer Term, they look forward to rehearsing and performing their end-of-year leavers' performance for the whole-school and family members. They will have lots to prepare as they leave our lovely little school in July to embark on their new adventures at secondary school.
Monday 2nd October:
We arrived at Hilltop after a pleasant journey this morning. Year 6 enjoyed unpacking their belongings in their rooms and getting used to their surroundings. We met lots of the instructors who we will be working with throughout the week.They taught us how to use a harness correctly, how to secure a helmet and how to remain safe on site. We played lots of 'ice breaker' games this afternoon. Year 6 are currently enjoying playing in the Games Room before dinner!
Tuesday 3rd October:
Year 6 slept well last night and thoroughly enjoyed tackling many activities on their first full day at Hilltop. Activities included: Tree Top Trail, Archery, Crate Stacking, an Assault Course and Bush Craft. Thankfully the weather is dry and not too chilly! The children are currently playing games before dinner. They are super excited for the D-I-S-C-O this evening - we cant wait to see some extravagant dance moves!
Wednesday 4th October:
Another busy day for Year 6 at Hilltop. We've been busy building fires, zip wiring, making our way through an assault course and spending money at the Tuck Shop! A bit cooler today but the children are too busy having fun to mind! Year 6 are looking forward to dinner and our evening activity, Owls and Mice.
JUST A REMINDER...IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, PLEASE SEND YOUR HILLTOP TELEGRAMS TODAY SO WE CAN HAND THEM TO THE CHILDREN BY THE END OF THE DAY. Contact Hilltop if you need support with this. We have already received lots of messages and cards. Thank you!
Thursday 5th October:
After a damp start, our day turned out well - we enjoyed more fun activities together! Some of Year 6 completed a hike to Sheringham ending with a delicious ice cream at Ronaldo's! Others completed: climbing, abseiling, orienteering and the Super Swing (even Miss O'Connor had a go!) The children are enjoying the Games Room before dinner and our final evening activity, A Dark Walk and Campfire. Year 6 have had a wonderful week but are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow and greeting you with a lovely large case of washing! Miss O'Connor will contact the school office to inform them of a estimated time of arrival once we have started our journey home. We aim to return to Our Lady of Lourdes between 4:30 - 5pm (depending on traffic). A group text will be sent to you with more precise details tomorrow.
