King's Hawford

Year 6 Activity Week

It was an adventurous few days for our wonderful Year 6 children last week as they embarked on their final school trip with King’s Hawford – an action-packed Activity Week with a couple of days at Upon Warren Aztec Adventure and an exciting camp out here at school.

Due to the uncertainty of travel and residential restrictions, we were unable to book our normal leavers trip to Carsington, Derbyshire, but undeterred, Mrs Redman, Mrs Hyde, and Mrs Atkins organised a wonderful few days for the children to enjoy and celebrate their final few weeks with us.

Action and Adventure at Upton Warren

The children spent their first two days at Upton Warren Aztec Adventure to participate in a variety of land based and water-based activities, including orienteering, kayaking, sailing, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), and a fun filled session on the Aqua Park. Thankfully the weather was on side and we enjoyed a glorious couple of days on the lake.

Once their time at Upton Warren came to a close, it was straight back to school to enjoy a night camping out under the stars here at King’s Hawford. A huge thank you to Mrs Redman who’d set up tents and created the most amazing camp area, including a cooking station well stocked with ingredients and equipment for the children to make their own evening meal.

Following dinner, it was time for the campers to gather around the fire and reflect upon their time here at Hawford whilst toasting marshmallows and making S’mores. The children shared some of the wonderful memories and friendships they’ve made during their time at school, as well as their favourite activity at Upton Warren.

After a slight break from proceedings to watch the England game, it was time to head back to the tents for some much needed rest.

The children were treated to a wonderful breakfast at school the following morning and were given the opportunity to relax with a cinema experience, before heading to Redpoint in Worcester for an afternoon of climbing.

KH Radio Leavers Edition

This week we have a very special edition of KH Radio – our weekly school podcast – thanks to Year 6 student George, who was unable to join the water based activities due to a broken arm. George spent his time reporting as part of the KH Radio team to bring us this special show which covers the Year 6 activity week.

Our thanks to Mrs Redman, Mrs Hyde and Mrs Atkins for their hard work in creating such a special experience, and to our team of supporters who gave up their time to help ensure the smooth operation of our camp out.
