Fun and Team Work at the Robinwood Residential

A school trip to Robinwood Residential saw Year 5 students embark on some interesting adventures! Students took part in a three day, two night course aimed at 7-11 year olds: The trip packed in 15 activities that; developed team work, challenged students and stimulated imagination.

The Residential is housed in Dobroyd Castle in the Todmorden Moors, a historical grade 2 listed building offering an incredible range of activities from archery, caving and climbing to obstacle courses, giant swings and zip wires, and everything in between. 

The residential aims to impact on young learners in a positive way by developing social awareness, building confidence and teamwork.  Activities are child centred and leaders specialise in the development of children, where activities are used as a vehicle for growth.

Mr Nilsson said: “The best part of the Robinwood Residential is being able to see the children working so well together and adapting to a different environment.  Most importantly, they all had a great time and worked incredibly well as teams, many having a go at activities they had never tried before.”

As a school, we thoroughly enjoy being able to put on these action packed residentials for the children.  The excited adventurers have said: “We love Robinwood, the climbing was so much fun, and I got to the top of the wall!”  

Safety, enjoyment and learning are the priority and the students of Oakwood have been wonderful this week.  Fully immersing themselves in all of the activities on offer and behaving as excellent ambassadors of the Academy.
