Fairplay Barge Haybay
A number of Year 6 children are able to visit the Barge Haybay each year where they spend three days taking part in outdoor and team building activities. For some of the children this visit is their first time away from home which offers the opportunity for them to learn to look after themselves by making their own beds and keeping their areas tidy. As the Barge is part catered, the children also learn to prepare their meals and do the washing up.
A group of 16 children, accompanied by members of staff, travelled to Lille in June to visit our French link school, Ecole Condorcet. They were given a very warm welcome at the school and left saying that they felt like celebrities! The children ordered their meals in French in a restaurant and picked up some new words. During their time in Lille they also visited an old fashioned waffle factory, La Gaufre du Pays Flamand.
