Year 6 Trip to Sierra Nevada

Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Sierra Nevada for two nights.  For many children it was the first time they had been on the slopes and for a few children, the first time they had ever been in contact with snow! The children were split into ability groups and then were taken off for 8 hours of tuition over two days by fully qualified instructors.  Each and every child made excellent progress, the most noticeable progress of course were the non-skiers, who made it onto the lifts and up the green slopes by the end of the excursion.  Teaching staff and monitors were so proud of their achievements, and the children themselves experienced what real resilience is!  Carrying their own skis and poles and coping with the uncomfortable boots was a challenge, but all children were up to the job and the trip was a highly successful one, with behaviour being exemplary.
