Over the Academic Year we facilitate Residential visits for all children in Year 2 to Year 6.
Chapelford Village Primary School reserves the right to change the visits outlined above in line with Year Group Long term plans.
We are excited to offer our year 2 children the exciting opportunity to be enveloped by the magic of Gulliver's world on an overnight stay which includes some time on the last day to enjoy the rides with just their class. There are many other exciting activities waiting for them including a scooter orienteering safari, a DT workshop on designing swings and roundabouts, a cookery class as well as a night walk and film with friends. As the venue is so local, it is the perfect chance for our younger children to experience all the fun of a residential without being too far away from home.
Each November, Year 3 venture to the Fox Howl Centre in Delamere.
The Delamere Centre is ideally located for immediate and safe access to several areas of Delamere Forest, without having to walk along busy roads. The centre works alongside Forestry England to provide activity areas in the local natural surroundings. Our centre and the area allows for activities such as orienteering, den building, survival skills, pond dipping, environmental games, forest art and walks during which pupils can study animal habitats and the different flora and fauna of the forest.
We visit for two days and one night, and find this is a great experience to do some learning outside the classroom for Science, Geography, PSHE and Art.
Help us find the next Alex Rider
Children will become part of a new cohort of secret agents. We’re on the lookout for the next Alex Rider!
They will reach new heights as a team, spark a love for reading, and experience all the great outdoors has to offer with YHA’s Alex Rider programme.
We know how important it is for young people to experience extraordinary adventures. That’s why we’ve sourced this new residential visit which links to Walker Books an author Anthony Horowitz to create a unique action-filled YHA Alex Rider adventure package.
The children will have the opportunity to build lifelong skills centred around team building and outdoor pursuits. At the beginning of the programme, each pupil will create their very own spy name, helping them to get into character and immerse themselves in the Alex Rider world.
In Year 5, we go over the border into Wales for a 2 day / 1 night visit to Llandudno.
On our way to the centre of town we stop at either the Greenwood Centre, or the Welsh Mountain Zoo - where we get to spend some time with nature.
When we arrive at Llandudno Hostel, we have a hearty meal before an evening on the beach playing different games, and feeling the sand in between our toes!
On the second day of our trip, we consolidate our History and Geography learning with a trip up the Great Orme on the tram, firstly stopping of a the Bronze mines for a lesson in how the Great Orme was found to house one of the oldest known Bronze mines in the UK. We then travel to the top of the Great Orme, taking in the views before we trek back down - via the local ski centre for some tubing and tobogganing!
Some great first experiences are available to all of our children during this residential stay.
In October, we take our Year 6 pupils on a team building and resilience trip to Robinwood, Maes-y-Nant, Cross Lanes, Wrexham.
During this residential over 3 days and 2 nights our children experience a wide variety of indoor and outdoor pursuits, testing their physical and mental resilience.
We find the trip is great to bring the classes together, in this important final year of Primary School.
