Residential Trips

Nicky Nook children visited Tower Wood for the week in January. Despite the cold weather, they adventured through caves, climbed the high ropes, completed archery challenges, spent a day on the lake (and in it) and spent lots of time building their teamworking skills, resilience and bravery. They had a fantastic time and made all of the teachers extremely proud! 

Nicky Nook were very excited to spend three nights at Tower Wood. We spent so much time learning new skills, trying new things and exploring the lake district. As well as getting very cold and wet, we also went caving, ghyll scrambling and tree-climbing! 


What did the children think? 

"The most memorable moment was probably when we reached the top of Gummers How. It was very windy - it could practically catch you and blow you away! My main achievement was probably when I did the small passageways in the caves, it was nerve-wracking!" 


"My favourite part was caving definitely because first we went in a really big cave and then we went into lots of smaller ones. We were really brave when we went ghyll scrambling as the water was freezing. We fought our fears!" 

Our Year 5 and 6 pupils attended Borwick Hall for three days in June 2019. They had a wonderful time participating in a wide range of challenging team and individual activities which tested their physical skills as well as building their confidence.


What did the children think?

“I really enjoyed being able to do new things with my friends.”

“The stories about Old Borwick hall were brilliant.”

“I never thought I could do the Tower of Borwick. It was so scary but I did it!”

“I loved canoeing even though our team weren’t very good at steering the boat.”

“The team challenges helped me to understand why we have to listen.”
