Residential trips are school trips that take place over a few days and pupils are required to stay away from home. Residential trips are usually activity-based trips and are one of the first experiences of being away from home for a child. Trips are usually linked to the topic studied in school and provide lots of opportunity for outdoor learning and discussion.
In year 6, children have the opportunity to take part in a funfilled week in Aberdovey, Wales. Children are taken away from every day life, to give them life changing experiences they won't get inside the classroom. Whilst children are away they will:
- Improve confidence.
- Build relationships.
- Increase resilience.
- Have an understanding of the natural environment.
