Children in Year 4 spent a weekend recently at Skern Lodge in Appledore where they completed a range of fun activities including archery, kayaking, climbing, tunnelling and zip lining.

School Headteacher, Ruth Noall, said: “The children were all incredibly brave and resilient and had a go at everything the weekend offered.

“The Skern Lodge instructors were brilliant at supporting the children and helped to make the trip so memorable.

“Year 4 had a truly amazing time filled with laughter, adventure and teamwork, and returned home with lots of new memories.”
