What a fantastic 3 days away year 5 and 6 have had at Dobroyd Castle on the Robinwood residential!

Wednesday morning was a very exciting morning for the children from year 5 and 6 who had packed their suitcases with plenty of old clothes in preparation for many exciting activities. We set off from school and had a very good journey up to Dobroyd Castle in Todmorden. When we arrived we were greeted by our fantastic group leaders, Sam and Seth, who then took us on a walk (in the rain) up to the castle.

As we entered Robinwood, we caught a glimpse of some of the exciting activities coming up during our stay there. Our leaders took us off to find our rooms that we would stay in, where we had to make our beds and pack our kit bags ready for the afternoon. Following this it was finally time for lunch (we were all very hungry by this time).

Following lunch, we all met up together and then split into our two activity groups, Stream and Avalanche. We took part in the trapeze, zip wire, piranha pool, challenge course and climbing. We had a lot of fun pushing ourselves to complete the various challenges and work together as a team.

On Thursday, we had a very busy day, packed full of different activities to further develop our team work skills. We got to have a go at the Knight's Quest challenge, canoeing, raft building, Dungeon of Doom, Archery and Crate challenge. It was great to see that all of the children in both groups had shown a great improvement in their communication and team work skills from Wednesday. Following tea, we then took part in the team challenges where we all came together as a group to play a range of different games.

On our final day at Robinwood, we had a go on the giant swing, nightline (where we had to follow an obstacle course as a team whilst blindfolded) and caving. We then had our final meal at Robinwood and made our way back down the hill to the bus.

The children along with Miss Phillips, Miss Smith, Mrs Winward and Mrs Clarke all very much enjoyed their stay at Robinwood with every child pushing themselves to do their best and explore outside of their comfort zones (all of the adults pushed themselves out of their comfort zones too!!). We would like to say a very big thank you to all of the fabulous staff at Robinwood, who helped to make this a very successful trip for year 5 and 6.
