White Hall Residential
Year 6 were lucky enough to have the opportunity to go on a 2-night residential trip to White Hall, which is located in Derbyshire. There were a few overall aims of the trip: to learn how to work well as a team; to challenge themselves outside of their comfort zones and to develop independence.
During the 3 days spent at White Hall, the children were given the opportunity to take part in a range of activities: rock scrambling, stream scrambling, zip wiring, rope climbing, night hiking and team-building games. Every child challenged themselves to take part in as much as they could and thoroughly enjoyed being in the outdoors.
Please feel free to have a look at the video below if you want to photos of the children in action.
During Art Week, we learned all about 'Andy Goldsworthy' who is a famous British sculpturer, photographer and environmentalist. He is famous for creating land art from natural resources in urban settings. A lot of his artwork is produced using materials such as flowers, mud, leaves, twigs pebbles, pine cones, bark, grass, etc. Most of his work is created outside and is intended to be temporary; he photographs it and allows it to remain in the natural environment to decay at its own rate.
As a year group, we collected some natural resources and created our own sculptures. Like Andy, we then took photos of our work at the end. Some of us even moved on to create some natural-looking collages using different coloured pieces of paper. The results were very effective! Take a look at some of our work below...
