Whitby 2016 - Year 6 Residential

Picture 1

Monday 16th May

We set off from school bright and early on our journey to North Yorkshire. Everyone was very excited and we enjoyed the journey. We made a stop at Blyth to have a snack and a drink before setting off again to Rotherham, where we spent the afternoon at 'MAGNA'. Magna is an amazing activity museum, where we learned all about earth, wind, fire and water. We took part in some really exciting activities and especially loved the Water section, where we tried our hardest not to get wet! (Unsuccessfully.....!)

After an exciting afternoon, we set off for Whitby, arriving at Sneaton Castle just in time for dinner.

We spent the rest of the evening settling in and also exploring the grounds.

Tuesday 17th May

We had an early breakfast today and set off for Pickering. We were due to ride on the steam train - part of the North York Moors Railway from Pickering back to Whitby. We changed our plans a little so that we could also visit Pickering castle before our train set off at midday.

The journey took us through lots of villages across the moors and we even stopped at a station used in the Harry Potter films!

After dinner, we set off by coach for York. The evening activity was the 'Ghost Walk' and we met James, our guide, outside York Minster. He took us through lots of 'snickleways' (small alleyways and passages) in York, telling us spooky stories at each one. We had great fun!

Wednesday 18th May

We set off after breakfast today for Eden Camp in Malton. This is an old WW2 prisoner of war camp that now tells the story of the First and Second Word Wars. We were able to re-live the Blitz, walk down a 1940s street and be entertained by a 'Music Hall' puppet show (where we got wet again!). We especially enjoyed the 'exercise compound' which was a great adventure playground. We even had our photographs taken in the Sentry Box.

After dinner and showers, we enjoyed an evening in the Common Room, as it had started to rain outside - we played games, chatted to our friends and some of us even trued out new hairstyles!

Thursday 19th May

Today we set off bright and early for York, as we were spending the day learning about one of York's most important products - CHOCOLATE!

In the morning, we took part in a workshop with staff from the York Chocolate Story, learning all about how chocolate is made. We even made (and ate!) our own chocolate souvenirs.

In the afternoon, we had a tour of the York Chocolate Story and learned all about the importance of chocolate to York itself. This was great fun - especially as we got to try chocolate in lots of different forms and were allowed to make our own chocolate lolly!

After a lovely pizza dinner, we set about the task of packing everything for our journey home tomorrow. We then took part in a Chocolate Quiz in teams.

Friday 20th May

Today was our last day at Sneaton Castle. After another fabulously filling breakfast, we sett of for the short journey to Whitby Abbey. It was very windy on the cliff top, but we could even see Sneaton castle from the Abbey.

We enjoyed spending time exploring the ruins and spending the last of our pocket money in the shop!

Just before we left, we had our traditional 'Myland hats' photograph taken, with the Abbey as our backdrop.

We then enjoyed a traditional Whitby fish and chip lunch (delicious!0 before setting off on the long journey home.

 

(A note from Miss Griggs: - the children were an absolute pleasure to be with all week. Numerous members of the public commented on the children's excellent behaviour and we were very proud of each and every one of them. Well done Year 6!)
