PGL 2023

On Monday 15th May, Year 6 headed off to their residential visit. Click on the pictures below to see how things went.

Monday’s blog

On our way! No traffic jams yet!

We’ve arrived after a smooth journey and peaceful lunch and the children are now settling into their rooms!

We’ve met our leader for the week; her name is Sasha.

At dinner, along with the salad bar, we had lasagne or chicken curry. All children have eaten well!

Onto our evening activity – Balloon Splash! Drop a water balloon from a height after protecting it to stop it bursting… and the winners are… nearly everyone!

10.30pm now, and everyone’s asleep, or at least everyone is quiet! Breakfast at 7.20am so we start at 6.30am tomorrow…



Tuesday’s Blog

7.00am. We’ve all had a very QUIET UNEVENTFUL NIGHT and are up ready for breakfast. Szymon has arrived so we’re up to our full quota.

Activities today included Giant Swing, Climbing, Survivor, Problem Solving, Buggy Building and Archery Tag.

It’s been an incredibly full day with five activities for each group, followed by a midnight feast (at 9.00pm!). Many children have stretched themselves and achieved more than they thought they would. Here is a selection of the action below.


Wednesday’s Blog

Another quiet night with everybody up on time for a 7.20am breakfast. The weather forecast looks very good for the day ahead. We’re all canoeing today and the staff, at least, are hoping to stay dry! We’re also visiting the shop later, just in case we didn’t eat enough at the midnight feast yesterday…

Another packed day has taken place with four adventurous activities plus a quiz night in the evening. Jacob’s Ladder (some amazing achievements here) and Buggy building were undertaken by all groups with others including trapeze and zip wire. Half way through the week and we’re still going strong…


Thursday’s Blog

Another quiet night and a later breakfast this morning has given Thursday a relaxed feel. Happy birthday William, who has 3 climbing activities today – his favourite!

The Sensory trail activity starts today offering a rather different experience. Rain is due later after a week of sunshine, but we’re certain it won’t spoil anything.

It ended up dry all day today, although some children got ‘mysteriously’ wet on the sensory trail! There were a lot of ‘at height’ activities today including trapeze, vertical challenge and crate challenge.
We finished off with a disco to Work off any remaining energy. We have an early start tomorrow to get packed and sorted before our final activities which include abseiling.
One last night away from home…




Friday’s Blog

We’re out of our rooms and are just having breakfast before our activities.

We are planning to leave Liddington between 1.30 and 2.00pm so aim to be back at school between 4.30 and 6.00pm.

It has remained dry all morning for our last two activities, which included abseiling for all groups, and we’ve just had our packed lunch on site.


2.40pm: We’re on our way home!

Some photographs from Friday’s activities were unavailable and will be uploaded to the School Website later this weekend.
