Year 7 pupils recently attended their residential at Kingswood Activity Centre, which is a fundamental part of their Carr Manor experience and a brilliant opportunity for them to build new relationships with fellow pupils and staff.
They took part in team-building activities to encourage communication skills, challenged themselves with the adventurous and high-adenaline activities (even with the snow!) and motivated each other to get involved in the fun and rewarding journey.
Pupils shared some of their experiences of the residential;
“We had snowball fights and built igloos, not to mention having a nice warm hot chocolate at the end of the day, but it wasn’t just the snow that made it so good, it was the activities too.”
“There were lots of fun activities, these included; zip wire, Jacob’s Ladder, which was a colossal ladder placed right in the middle of a field, buggy building, laser tag, igloo building and loads more!”
The residential was a great chance for pupils to form new friendships and make lasting memories.
“I was getting to know people who I’d never even spoken to before the residential. Adding that all up, the residential was really good and enjoyable.”
