Residential Visit

At Stanway Primary, the children in Year 6 attend a visit to a Kingswod centre in West Runton, Norfolk. They spend four nights and five days away from school, traditionally during the last week of the first half term of the autumn term.

The centre offers a range of activities that cannot be offered at school and which allow for learning to take place in a variety of contexts and environments. The programme of events that the children take part in is the ‘outdoor and adventure’ option. It offers children the chance to work independently and as part of a group through a variety of challenges such as abseiling, orienteering and rock climbing.

The children set their own targets to achieve during the week, but the nature of the activities also allows for a variety of objectives from the National Curriculum to be met, including:

Physical Education (KS1 and 2), purpose of study – ‘Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.’
Physical Education (KS2)  ‘Pupils should be taught to take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team.’
