Newlands Junior School

We are Proud

Y6 Residential 2019

The coach left Newlands at 9:30am and after a rather long journey, it finally arrived at Hagg Farm at 11am.

After a quick briefing, everyone was kitted out with waterproofs and walking boots and it was time for a much needed lunch!


Fun and games followed as many Y6 children have never had to make their own bed!!



Then it was time for an afternoon of problem solving, with lots of teamwork, encouragement and bucket loads of resilience thrown in as well!

'The floor is lava!'

Zipwire fun!

Monday 9th September

Today we got to experience 2 activities with our group- We participated in either Canoeing, Caving, Geocaching and Orienteering & Shelter building. Despite the rain, we had lots of fun. Whether we were running around with a GPS searching for clues, building a shelter or venturing deep underground into caves, we have had a smashin' time :) Tomorrow we will be completing the two activities that we didn't take part in today. We will update you with more photos of our fun adventures tomorrow evening!

Geocaching and Caving

Tuesday 10th September 2019

Today we completed the two activities that we had not completed yesterday! With the sun shining, we enjoyed time on the lake - canoeing. We visited Giant's cave and managed to complete 4 challenges and at the centre the groups completed their geocaching and orienteering challenges!
