Residential visits are a key part of life at ECPS. We believe that such activities not only promote greater independence and develop life skills but they also provide the memories that a primary school education should provide. We hope that our well planned range of residential visits encourage the children to see the world as an exciting and wonderful place to explore and that it supports them in realising that learning is a life long journey!
Year 2 Stay Awake Over
Year 4 East Barnby
We all had an amazing time at East Barnby just before the Easter holidays. The trip got off to a super start when we were all complimented by our instructors on our fantastic listening skills. Our first afternoon was spent down on the seashore at Runswick Bay exploring rock pools and finding fossils. We found crabs, limpets, winkles, butter fish and star fish. Our first evening activity was sledging on the dry ski slope, it was awesome! Our second day of activities was a walk up Roseberry Topping to see the amazing views from the top. We felt such a sense of achievement when we got to the top. That afternoon, we braved the North Sea and went body boarding. It was SO cold but we had loads of fun riding the waves and splashing around. That evening, we improved our communication skills when we competed the night line. We had to give our blindfolded partner instructions to get over the obstacles. Our final morning was spent orienteering at Brow Top overlooking Robin Hood's Bay. This was a chance to improve our map reading skills and work as a team.
Year 5 Edinburgh:
We're all really looking forward to our visit to Edinburgh in June 2019. The document below is a copy of the presentation shared with parents to support them in deciding whether or not their child will attend. We hope for a 100% take up of this brilliant opportunity. Please see the .pdf below and if you have any questions, get in touch.
Bewerley Park - Monday
We have had a wonderful day. Children have settled in really well and have gathered all the equipment they will need for the week. We have sampled our first lunch and dinner which went down a storm - safe to say we're not going hungry. Our activities have already stretched us as we are looking forward to what tomorrow brings. Enjoy perusing our photos from today and I hope to keep you updated daily with photos of our adventures. Miss Hill, The Team and the children!
Bewerley - Tuesday and Wednesday
What a wonderful couple of days it has been! Yes it has been cold and tough, but the children have banded together and faced the adversities together. Most groups have now been ice smashing on the lake and have entered the rushing waters of How Stean Gorge. All the Bewerley staff have commented on the positivity they have heard from the children and are impressed with how supportive and inclusive all children are being with members of their group. We have settled into the routine well and look forward to our last couple of days.
Please find below the slides for the Year 6 Bewerley Meeting and Kit list.
