Form 6 arrived in school full of excitement on Monday 19th June ready for their trip to the Isle of Wight. Following a long drive to Lymington Ferry Port, they made a crossing to Yarmouth and began a busy week of visits and activities. The first stop was Alum Bay where they witnessed glass being made in front of their eyes, explored The Needles Old Battery and made sand shapes using multi-coloured sand. All this before they had even arrived at The Fernside, their home for the week. The owners, Stuart and Angela were fantastic hosts and thoroughly looked after the class during their stay – they definitely didn’t go hungry!
On Tuesday, whilst enjoying wonderful weather, Form 6 tried some water sports at Wight Water before visiting Monkey Haven in the afternoon, where they saw some amazing animals! On Wednesday, they explored Carisbrooke Castle, before heading to Ryde for tree climbing, and then finished a very busy day at Sky Nets in Sandown. Thursday saw them visit Robin Hill where they raced on the toboggan, swung on the pirate ship and watched a spectacular bird show. Friday, the final day on the IOW, saw Form 6 pack their bags before enjoying their last breakfast and heading out to play Dino Golf. Later in the day the ferry brought the class safely to Portsmouth and their coach journey home – it certainly was a quieter journey than the one they had made on Monday!
