31 children were packed and ready to go at 7 this morning for their year 6 residential to Lockerbie. The journey went smoothly and we arrived as planned to Lockerbie Primary School where we had a tour of the school. Shavington pupils quickly made friends with P7 and P6 (the equivalent of our year 5 and 6) who accompanied our group to Lockerbie Manor.
We arrived to bright sunshine, full of excitement for the afternoon activties. The group got stuck into the likes of: rifle shooting, fencing and archery, which was followed by a well deserved meal and desert. After dinner everyone took part in yet another activity.
“I think it’s very challenging. The zip wire was very scary, and I’m looking forward to canoeing tomorrow!” (Chloe Bolland)
“I liked doing climbing in the dark!” (Gabby Bush)
“I’ve been climbing, doing archery and its been really good. You even get hot chocolate before bedtime!” (Niall Hough Bunn)
Looking forward to another action packed day tomorrow.
