Busy week for Y6 at Mill on the Brue

Climbing wall at Mill on the Brue

Kingscourt's Y6 classes enjoy week long residential at Mill on the Brue, Somerset

Both Y6 classes had a marvellous time together last week as they spent five gloriously sunny days on a residential at Mill on the Brue, Somerset.

Whilst there, the children were able to push their confidence boundaries by having a go at the climbing wall, obstacle course, archery, canoeing, the zip wire, high walk, grass slide tobogganing, the egg challenge and much, much more.

Teacher Tom Allen said, “We were very impressed at how well the children worked together, settled into being away from home and took on numerous new challenges throughout the time we were there.  They were supportive of each other and we loved to see how much they encouraged each other to reach for new heights – sometimes literally!”

Colleague, Hannah Lejasmeiers agreed and added, “The weather was quite challenging at times as it was so hot and sunny, but everyone was sensible, made sure they drank lots of water, covered up with sunscreen and kept to the shade. The children were incredibly mature in their approach to the week. We were very proud of them.”

Kingscourt School has a long association with Mill on the Brue.  The Somerset based residential centre offers children the chance to not only push their confidence boundaries, but also to learn about sustainability and the food cycle. Whilst there, Kingscourt’s Year 6 won the Food Waste Challenge being the school who left the most food at mealtimes during the week.
