We are very pleased to offer exciting residential activities for children in Year 4, 5 and 6 each year.
Year 4 and 5 Residential
Our Head Teacher leads a 2 night residential for Year 4 and 5 pupils in January. We visit Minstead Study Centre in the New Forest, where we learn about the environment and sustainability. We have a brilliant time exploring the treasures of the New Forest. We earn beads as we investigate each of the values of the centre.
We cover all curriculum subjects- this year we did some stream dipping then used the microscopes to make observations and analyse our findings, we did fire-lighting and developed our orienteering skills. The underlying messages of the trip are about how fragile our Earth is and how we can save energy and better use the resources we have. We always enjoy learning about the sheep and chickens and just how much they give us.
Evening treats include decorating lanterns to carry into the grounds where we enjoy a campfire. We come back to the beanbag room to chill out together before going to our dormitories for some well-earned sleep!
Year 6 Residential
Accompanied by their Class Teacher, Year 6 pupils from Yattendon Primary School join Year 6 pupils from other small primary schools to travel to Sealyham Activity Centre for a week (usually the first week in June).
Based in the heart of Pembrokeshire, Sealyham is chosen because of its unique environment. Unspoiled and uncrowded, it is an outdoor pursuits’ paradise! Exciting outdoor activities have been organised at Sealyham Activity Centre since 1986 and offer exhilarating and stimulating experiences for children. All activities are led by a team of qualified and experienced instructors.
We believe that outdoor pursuits provide an exciting, physical medium for learning. Each pupil will achieve – perhaps coping with a first stay away from home and parents; learning to become an effective member of a team; or conquering a fear of heights or water.
Instructors spend time encouraging and supporting children to participate in each of the activities. The Sealyham residential ALWAYS features highly in memories shared by Year 6 pupils at Yattendon Primary School’s annual Leavers’ service. Memories to last a lifetime!
