Green Park


On Thursday 11th May Year 4 waved goodbye to their parents and set off on their first school residential trip. There was a huge cheer when the coach entered through the gates to Green Park.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted my Mr Mills and Mr Luck from Premier Sports who has set up a round-robin of activities. These activities were designed to develop team-working skills. At each station the group had to work together as a team to try to beat the records of previous teams.

After this we played a field –game: Foxes and Farmers. There was lots of running about. Before we knew it, it was time for lunch.

After filling up with Sandwiches, crisps, Kit-Kats and fruit we went to the field with Mr Mills where we had a choice of activities. We could either play a shooting game with Nerf guns, do some archery or have some free time. Some of us decided to say ‘hello’ to the cows in the field opposite.

At 2pm, 4a went swimming and 4b walked to the local park. An hour later the classes swapped. The lifeguard at the pool was very complimentary about our school’s behaviour in the pool.

Finally at 4:30pm we were allocated our rooms. We unpacked and set up our bags. We waved goodbye to Mrs Boddington and Mrs Van Aurich and welcomed Ms Wolfe for the evening. We then had some free time till dinner.

At 6pm we went to dinner. Dinner was delicious roast chicken with a sponge pudding and fruit for dessert. After dinner we got into teams and did a quiz. We could earn points for our time by taking part in different activities. These included wrapping a friend in toilet role, using mouths to search for smarties in flour, a cracker biscuit eating competition and building paper aeroplanes .

After the excitement of the quiz, we got ready for bed before reflecting on the action packed day.  We went to bed and it wasn’t long before everyone was asleep, recharging batteries for the next day.

In the morning Ms Pater took a group of children for a 7:30 jog around the Green Park site. At 8:30 we had breakfast: cereal, pain au chocolate and toast. Mr Mills met us and took 4a to the field for more activities while Mr Cook and Ms Hawes led Foot-golf with 4b. At 11am we swapped round.

Following lunch at midday, we got all our bags together, had a final play and finished with a biscuit and squash before getting on the coach for the trip home.

After an unusual route back via Princes Risborough and High Wycombe we arrived at school, worn out but full of exciting stories to tell parents.

Thank you to the staff at Green Park, Ms Pater, Miss Hawes, Ms Wolfe, Mrs Van Aurich, Mrs Boddington, Mr Mills, Mr Luck and Mr Cook for keeping us safe and making the trip enjoyable.

Finally, well done to Year 4 who got stuck in to all activities (even when unsure) and represented the school fantastically well.
