To celebrate and prepare our Year 6 pupils for their final year at Cricklade Manor Prep they had a wonderful opportunity to take part in a Leadership Training Residential. They got to put their skills to the test as the spent two days of putting up tents, building campfires, climbing ropes, and sailing boats. Focusing on teamwork, communication and leadership, Yr 6 learnt the enjoyment of tackling and achieving new challenges together, preparing for their next big steps.
A fabulous time was had by all, with pupils leaving with happy smiles, important life skills and firm friendships.
“I enjoyed the gladiator challenge the most and was proud because I was able to complete the Jacobs ladder with two of my classmates” – current Yr 6 pupil
“The thing I enjoyed most about the tear 6 leadership residential was the sailing. I am most proud of the trust that I gained in my classmates” – current Yr 6 pupil
“I really enjoyed getting to know other people’s personalities and pushing myself to get a little bit more of my fear of heights out of me” – current Yr 6 pupil
“The thing that I most enjoyed about the year six residential was the teamwork involved to achieve the fun activities. I love also sleeping over in a tent with my friends. I am very proud that I climbed to the top of the climbing frame because me and heights are not the greatest of friends” – current Yr 6 pupil
“I most enjoyed the high ropes. I am really proud of myself completing the Gladiator Challenge because it got me out of my comfort zone” – current Yr 6 pupil
“I just wanted to thank you all for your involvement in the Year 6 residential event. My child is not an outdoors person and normally does not enjoy such events but she had an amazing time on both days” – current Yr 6 parent
