From Wednesday 3rd October until Friday 5th October 2018, Year 6 had the opportunity to visit the historic city of York for their annual residential visit.
After an early start we set off towards our first destination, Eden Camp. An open air museum based around Britain’s part in WW2. We spent some time in groups walking around the museum and visiting the various huts. We learned about: U-boats, The Home Front, The Blitz and lots more. This will enhance our learning back in the classroom and help with our creative topic work.
We finally arrived at YHA York (our hostel for the week). We were very excited to see our rooms and dive into our comfy bunk beds!
On day two, we visited York city centre. We were taken on a historical tour of the walls and regaled with fun facts about the city. Then we stopped at Pizza Hut to refuel for the day. To end the fun we visited The National Railway Museum and took part in a fun workshop ‘Under Pressure’ where we learned all about tunnels.
For our final day we ‘monkeyed around’ and took part in the tree top adventure at Go Ape. It was lots of fun climbing the obstacles and flying down the zip wire.
What a fun adventure we had!
