Castleton residential fun for Year Six pupils

Year six pupils had an enjoyable and action packed trip on the annual residential outing to the village of Castleton in Derbyshire.

After checking in and dropping their bags off, the boys and girls made their way out to their spacious playground – a large forest filled with trees and lots of swings!

The pupils took part in a range of activities, with the shelter task one of the favourites. The task challenged the pupils to work as a team of four to build a shelter which would not buckle as a bucket of water was thrown over it. They also learnt how to make a fire.

On the second day the adventurers climbed Mam Tor hill, a tiring but enjoyable five hour trek which was rewarded with a trip to the sweet shop at the top!

To finish the day everyone sat down to rest their weary legs and watch a film.

Amelie Batey had a great time at Castleton: “I loved all of it but the best part was the freedom. I also loved the animals – there were lambs, pigs and goats; they were adorable!”

Mackenzie Shropshire agreed: “It was an amazing trip overall.”
