River Dart Residential – Day 5

Day 5 – our fifth and final day in the River Dart. 

Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 spent the morning raft building whilst groups 5 and 6 had the crate stacking and zip line activities. They were absolutely brilliant (but very tired) and loved every second of it.

Following our activities we had a very quick tidy and pack, resulting in a massive sort out in the drying room where there were piles and piles of clothes left behind! We have a bin bag full of things which were left behind so if you spot that your child is missing something then please come and let us know next week (but please not Monday morning!)

We then had a packed lunch on the picnic benches and were awarded with our certificates for our week. These were very well deserved!

We are SO proud of the children; they have pushed themselves to their limits, smiled loads and had a fantastic time. The centre have been absolutely brilliant and really encouraged the children to challenge themselves and because of this, they have achieved far more than they set out to. We could not have had better children to take away with us! We would take them again in a heartbeat.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend… minus the lovely washing your child has come home with! (I do not envy you as you open the bag full of damp, musty and muddy clothes!!) More importantly, I hope you are also being treated to some fantastic stories of our time. Thank you for all of your lovely comments whilst collecting your children and your messages via the blog every day. We are so happy and pleased that you feel you have been able to keep track of what we have been doing and it was totally worthwhile when we saw your messages every evening.

If you would like any of the original pictures, please send your child in with a USB next week and I can put them on there for you. Alternatively, you can save them from the website (although Day 1 blog photos were very small!)

This is us over and out for the very last time. Thank you for making our trip brilliant. See you all on Monday morning, where the fun doesn’t stop as we have production to get started with!

We love you Year 6! You’re all amazing!

  13. Chantice & Kara

    Thank you to all the teachers that got stuck in over the week!! It looked like so much fun, reminded me of when I went to a residential trip with my school yonks ago! Lol. The children looked like they were having an amazing time!! Kara has not stopped talking about all of the adventures and activities she was involved in, she said she totally loved it!
    Ps Love the photos! And Miss Bartropp singing haha X

  14. Andy and Annie Ball

    Thank you to everyone involved in making such a fantastic experience for the children and for all the pictures and blogs that kept us up to date. Joe was out on his feet when he got back but couldn’t stop talking about it – so much to tell and at the same time as Lizzie telling us about her experience at Green Park. It got quite competitive at one point and we didn’t have enough ears to take it all in. Have a great weekend.

  15. Andy and Annie Ball

    Please put each of the days of the Year 6 river Dart trip back on the website. Thank you

    • Miss Bartropp

      They are on the website. You will need to click on the blogs you can see and at the bottom there is an option to flick back to the previous day or flick forward to the next one. Alternatively, if you click on the top bar on ‘Trips’ you can access all of the blogs and photos.

  16. Sylvia Baldwin

    A big thank you to everyone who made this trip possible.The children had a wonderful week and will remember this holiday for many years to come.From the grandparents of Isabelle

  17. Andy Ball

    Thanks Miss Bartropp, found them now.

  18. Jenny Longmore

    To all the teachers & staff who helped provide our year 6 children with this fabulous memorable residential – Thank You! Kieran was so tired arriving home but didn’t stop talking, he literally chatted with excitement about this trip all evening & weekend. I’ve enjoyed sharing the photos & blogs with family too. Realisation that our children are coming to the end of an era and are growing up before our eyes so quickly, off to secondary so soon, is starting to hit home. Knowing they will all go in their different directions with great memories such as these though makes it a little easier…. I will send Kieran in with a USB to save all photos (what a lovely memento to have)! Hope everyone is now rested & thanks again! x
