Independence and resilience on Bronze Westbourne Award

The Year 4 pupils went to the New Forest on their first residential - their Bronze Westbourne Award.

Mr Cutting, Year 4 teacher, told us: "From the moment we arrived, Year 4 got stuck in...starting with making their bed and ending with some archery!

Year 4 were 'challenged by choice' in a series of activities, such as pedalos, high ropes, the tree top trail and paddle boarding.  Mr Cutting commented: "The children's particular highlights were the stand up paddle boarding and the tree top trail. Many children overcame their apprehension on the tree top trail."

"The children literally come home two inches taller -  exuding a huge sense of achievement, confidence and self-belief."

Mrs Davies, Head of Year 4

Mr Cutting continued: "The evenings were spent in great company with friends: playing games, taking walks and dancing at our very own disco."
