Robinwood Day 1 2023

An exciting first day! We have been canoeing, caving, braving the heights of the trapeze, high ropes, crate challenge and giant swing. We're just having fun taking part in some team games followed by hot chocolate and a good night's sleep, Looking forward to another super day tomorrow! 

Robinwood 2023 Day 2

We woke up to a layer of snow which was very exciting. All of our activities continued as usual- canoeing, zipline and high ropes in the snow were super fun! Everyone is having a great time; the children are showing amazing resilience and teamwork and we are all surprising ourselves with our achievements!

Robinwood Day 3 2023

We enjoyed taking part in some competitive Team Challenge games last night before another excellent night's sleep! Our final day of activities is now well under way. Everyone has had a super time and we are looking forward to telling you all about it when we arrive back at school later today.

Clonter Theatre Trip

We had a great day at the Clonter Theatre. We took part in 3 workshops and also had the opprtunity to see our Gobo designs projected onto the actual stage backdrop!

We started the day designing and making a Gobo -  an object placed inside or in front of a light source to control the shape of the emitted light and its shadow. We designed images based on the theme of 'Romans'.

Next we went into a music workshop were we enjoyed some rhythm games and then helped to compose a song about The Maya.

After lunch, we had the opportunity to sit in the theatre area and see our Gobo designs projected onto the stage. Some of us also got up on stage to position some props to add to the effect of our Gobo projections.

Lastly, we all took part in a costume design workshop. We were given a description of a character from a play and then decided in small groups how to pull our ideas together into a costume. We used card mannequins and various paper and cellophane materials to make our ideas take shape.
