Proposed Timetable

Day 1 – On Wednesday, children will need to be in school for 8.15am to ensure that they are prepared for the residential. Being at school early, will allow us time to pack the coach in order to depart on time (9am). Children will then depart for Crowden Outdoor Activity centre (a stop should not be necessary on the way). Once at Crowden, we will be greeted by the staff at meet in the dining area for lunch (Parents will need to supply a packed lunch). Children will have the opportunity to unpack and then start their activities. Children will then take part in team building challenges before experiencing a fantastic 3 course meal. After their stomach are full the children will take part in their 2nd activity – Evening walk. Upon returning, children will then have a chance to relax, before going to bed at a reasonable hour (hopefully).

Day 2 – Children start with breakfast. They have the opportunity to have a cooked breakfast and/or cereals before getting ready for the days activities (Paddle sport & Weaselling). A packed lunch (provided by Crowden) will be provided. At the end of the day, children will return to the main site for dinner and an evening of team competition / quizzes before getting a good night sleep.

Day 3 – Rise an shine for the day of departure. Breakfast to start before ensuring everything is packed and ready for departure. We we then take part in our final activity stream scrambling, venture up the river, through the countryside. One final check of site and we say goodbye to the staff at Crowden and depart for Uplands.

Although we aim to deliver on these activities, the children’s safety is our (and Crowden’s) priority. Order of activities / or activities themselves may be changed at last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. All activities are completed in the natural environments.

Yonex All England Championships 2022 (Badminton)

Children from the Badminton Club witnessed world class badminton players from all over the world, competing for the title at the YONEX All England Badminton Championships in Birmingham. With the lights down low, the children got to experience the atmosphere, joys and disappointment of players trying to secure their place in the finals on Sunday.

During the event, children also have the opportunity to participate in a series of different challenges around the forecourt of the stadium.

On Thursday, the children had the pleasure of meeting Greg Mairs and Jenny Moore, England Professional Mixed Pair. They have also created their own youtube channel. Why not try some of their home challenges such as the 180 degree jump activity (just remember to warm up first, and take it easy) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hHNet25ddI&list=PL6bpt8HeVN_8h-HjZH1FCzZrspP2SlRs0
