Year 6: Carlton Lodge

Year 6: Carlton Lodge

Dear Parents,

As most of you are aware we aim to improve our residential programme all the time and try to give you all as much notice as we can to allow you to prepare for the trips. The courses and centres we have chosen offer a progression in outdoor education through KS2.

Y6 will be visiting Carlton Lodge near Thirsk in the Summer Term. We feel that this centre offers Y6 children more of a challenge after their progressive outdoor education programme through KS2. It offers the children more opportunities to experience a better range of natural outdoor activities offsite, such as rock climbing, caving and gorge walking. As well as challenging activities at the centre base, including kayaking and raft building on a 4 acre lake, high ropes and zip wire. All activities are instructor led until 8.30pm each evening. The current Y6 have just returned having had a fantastic time.

Carlton Lodge is located on the outskirts of Carlton Minniot near Thirsk, the centre is on an extensive site with excellent indoor and outdoor facilities.

If you would like to discuss this any further don’t hesitate to contact me, parents and carers comments are always appreciated. Also if your child is Pupil Premium the cost of trip may be subsidised.

Thank you

Mrs C Hardy
