Year 5’s Big Break

October was a long time coming for the boys in Year 5. They had been waiting for it with anticipation as it was now time for their three night residential trip in the city of York. Miss Fry and Miss Raduca had the pleasure of their company for the week and reported back to school about their daily adventures.

Activities included a visit to York Minster, a tour of a chocolate factory and some down time with paintbrushes at the ceramic café. The daily videos on Facebook suggested that they were having an absolute ball and when they returned, they struggled to decide on their top three activities.

It has been said that they were model students on the trip. The teachers enjoyed it as much as they did.

‘The York trip made me feel independent and happy as I was with my friends.’ Praneel, Year 5

‘Being part of the York trip meant that I had to be sensible and respectful towards others staying in the area.’ Rayan, Year 5

‘My favourite part of the York trip was the ceramic café as I am really proud of the bowl I painted.’ Sambhav, Year 5

‘I really enjoyed going bowling because everyone was competitive. When Miss Fry said that she was, SHE MEANT IT!’ Erik, Year 5
