Kingswood Residential

In March 23 children from Year 2 enjoyed a one night residential at Kingswood. They did many activities such as bouldering, outdoor art, raft building and finally checking whether their raft floated on the reservoir. We all had a great time and had lots to tell our parents and carers when we got home.
