First residential trip for Year 4 - Hurstpierpoint College

First residential trip for Year 4

With a skip in their step, Year 4 pupils embarked on their first residential trip last week. They were excited for the adventures which lay ahead at Hindleap Warren.

On arrival, the children tackled their first challenge of making their beds in the dormitories. Teamwork skills were immediately required, as they collaborated to grapple with duvet covers and set up bunk beds. Once unpacked and settled, the outdoor pursuits began.

Our pupils experienced rope and boulder climbing, working together to achieve goals within team building activities, and navigating obstacle courses. The weather was not the best, but the children fully embraced the wet and muddy conditions, throwing themselves wholeheartedly into all endeavours.

We were impressed by the children’s resilience and ‘can do’ attitude throughout the trip Hattie Thompson and Kate O’Neill, Teachers of Year 4
