  4. 4. Y4 Robinwood Residential The Y4 Robinwood Residential was a huge success and the children drew on their experiences to produce some wonderful diary entries. Here are a few examples...

I that it would be okay, but when I got to it, my legs myself tried to calm everyone down, we were turned to jelly. As we carefully built the raft, I began to wearing piranha repellant tops and our trousers. I gain confidence. Despite my fear, eventually I stepped have to admit I was actually quite scared myself. onto it. My stomach was over-loaded with butterflies.

By Daniel Mercer-Jones Year 4 By Kate Bishop Year 4 Friday 6.05.11This morning I had extremely angry butterflies in my tummy because Year 4 were going on a residential for the first time! We were going to an activity centre called Robinwood in Todmorden. When the coach finally pulled up outside the centreeveryone screamed. My first activity was the zipwire. It was nerve racking at first but when you were flying through the air it was hard to be scared! Saturday 7.05.11Today my group did the piranha pool and everyone cried, even the boys! We had to find clues to escape the room. I cried nearly the whole time but despite my fears we all managed to get across and escape! Woo hoo! Sunday 8.05.11 Today was our last day but we still had 3 more activities to do. Out of all 3 my favourite was by far the giant swing. You sat on two round black seats with a wooden cylinder strapped in front of you. Behind you there was an old piece of hose that you had to chop to set off the swing.
