R.E.A.L. Fun on Residential
R.E.A..L. Independent School (RIS) learners have been having fun, learning new skills and tackling new challenges on their recent residential trip to the Lea Green Learning and Development Centre in Derbyshire.
A total of 25 Key Stage 3, 4, and 5 RIS learners visited the site, all staying for two days and one night throughout the week.
Learners took part in activities such as caving, obstacle courses and go-karting. They also enjoyed playing pool in the evening.
Stacey Edwards, R.E.A.L Education Key Stage 2 & 3 Curriculum Improvement Lead said: “The residential was a great success!
“There was some fantastic teamwork demonstrated by learners throughout all the activities, and they really challenged themselves – especially with the caving activity. Learners supported each other, helping staff and their fellow learners to climb up steep sides within the cave by using positive encouragement and persuasion.
“Go-karting was also great fun! The learners were able to compete against each other and really enjoyed the activity – especially racing against the staff!
“There were so many staff members who went over and above throughout the week – giving up their own time to stay on site, supporting learners through activities and also engaging learners in the evening by playing games and cooking tea.
“Thank you to everyone who made the week such a success and helped to create such special memories for our learners.”
