Year 6: Residential TRIP
PGL Activity Centre - Liddington, Wiltshire
The aims of the school trip are to:
Encourage independence in the children
Give the children a learning experience of going away with other people
Meet their geography curriculum expectations
Provide them with a cross-curricular experience
Encourage them to think about budgeting their own money.
Year 6 parents are invited to attend a meeting with Mr Chamberlin to find out more about our annual Year 6 residential. The trip for our current Year 6s is in September 2022.
We are currently reviewing arrangement for the trip for the current Year 5 children and will contact Year 5 parents once details are confirmed.
