Study trips are such an important part of school life at Wakefield Girls’, complementing academic classroom learning. On 18 May, Year 5 students travelled to Castle Head for a two night residential to develop their team work, collaboration, problem solving and resilience.
After a safe arrival and fuelled by a hearty picnic, the girls readied themselves for the afternoon’s activities in the sun. Divided into teams, the girl had an action packed afternoon with a night line challenge followed by a pole climb and high ropes course. The following day, our students became raft builders with a challenge to collaborate effectively to create rafts that would stay afloat and keep them dry. We’re pleased to say no-one was soaked ! Year 5 remained out at the coast, traversing and climbing the cliffs of Humphrey Head as well as miniature caving and searching for creatures at Bardsea Bay.
Two of our students shared their reflections on their trip:
We’re very proud of all of Year 5, working together and remaining resilient all trip !
