After an unplanned adventure on the way home with a coach and a ditch, and roadside den building and YMCA, we finally made it.  It has been a pleasure spending the weekend with your children, they have been brilliant, trying new things, challenging themselves and  supporting and encouraging each other . They should all be very very proud of themselves and you them.  Now time for a good scrub!


Monday 15th May 2023

Good morning all, we have some very tired children!! All have packed and tidied their rooms.  After breakfast, we will be climbing Jacob’s ladder and exploring the camp using maps.  Lunch is at 12.30 and we will be  leaving shortly after.

Sunday 14th May 2023

Good morning everyone. We had a very peaceful night last night, all children fast asleep by 11pm and had to be woken this morning. Today we are zooming down the zip line, scaling new heights on the climbing wall, fighting lake monsters with our canoes and aiming for the bullseye on the rifle range. Tonight we will be strutting our stuff at the disco.

Saturday 13th May 2023

Good Morning from Bawdsey Manor.  After an eventful night’s sleep with the last child asleep at 1 am and the first child awake at 5 am, we have enjoyed a delicious breakfast and are now getting ready for today’s activities.  We will be raft-building, completing a sensory trail blindfolded, jumping off the trapeze, and soaring into the sky on the giant swing. We ended the evening playing dodgeball and crab football.


Welcome to the Year 6 residential page.  This is where all the weekend’s pictures and information will appear.  Please keep checking over the weekend and send comments to your children.  We will share the comments with them.

All children and adults are safely on board and traveling happily to Bawdsey Manor
