Due to kind donations received from Bampton Welfare trust and Rosebank Care Home we have been able to purchase some wooden building blocks and a storage shed to enhance our playtimes.

 

Thank you to my helpers who unpacked the boxes and Mr Pearce for building the shed.

Congratulations to Holly our KS1 runner up and Eddie our KS2 winner.

                         

Thank you to the members of Carterton Lions who came to present the prizes.

Congratulations to the team who represented our school at the Burford Partnership Tag Rugby tournament yesterday. They came first! Great effort everyone- well done.

Wednesday 11th January

I arrived at the Pioneer Centre to find the children already engaged in their first group activity. I joined Mr Warner’s group who were busily engaged in Initiative Games, including ones which involved mathematical reasoning. Cooperative working, sharing ideas and listening to others were very evident as the group worked enthusiastically to solve practical problems (including “Bomb” Disposal!).

We then headed for the High Ropes where I joined the children in facing a personal challenge- how high were we going to be able to go? The children had already tried a physical challenge at height earlier in the week and so some were feeling confident of reaching the top and others keen to improve on things they found challenging. We all set ourselves goals and it was lovely to see the group supporting, encouraging and praising each other as they reached or exceeded their goals.

It was lovely to sit down over a hearty lunch and talk with the children about their Pioneer experiences. All the feedback was very positive. During the break we returned to the lodge and I was very impressed with how tidy the children’s rooms were.

The afternoon consisted of trust games on the low ropes and archery challenges before sitting down to enjoy a dinner of roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli followed by sponge and custard!

After dinner it was time for the children to visit the shop and take a shower. I said my farewells at 7pm as the children and staff left for the evening disco entertainment! I really enjoyed my day with the year 6 children and it was a privilege to be part of their residential experience. I look forward to hearing how the rest of their week goes and looking through the hundreds of photos that will come back with them!!
