We used our fantastic residential at Buckden House, as a stimulus for driven learning in all areas of our curriculum. The enjoyment, skills development and outcomes have been excellent.

- 11-09-2014 - Cameron & Conner ADay four and it’s nearly over… We've had a terrific time at Buckden House with all the amazing activities! During the week we've completed two walks, which were astonishingly exhausting. The first was from Kettlewell back to Buckden, which is about 4 miles, following the route of the river. On our journey we took a break to do some skillful sketching of the beautiful countryside. Unfortunately, the walk had to be cut short due to a herd of agitated cows and a fearsome looking bull. On Thursday we ventured up to the Fairy Glen. This walk was much more tiring because it mostly went up steep hills. When we finished the walks we were relieved that it was over but also proud of accomplishing something we had never experienced in our entire lives.
- 10-09-2014 - Enya & LewisDay Three of the Buckden residential! The most nerve-wracking activity has been the High Ropes, which looks like a giant climbing frame. First of all we had to complete a challenge to cross a stream using the zip lines and a bridge. The trickiest part was that you were not allowed to touch the floor for 30 minutes. Next we started climbing on the main frames. We used harnesses and ropes to try to complete the course. We all had to work as part of a team, while was one person climbing the others had to make sure the rope was secure and not too slack. The main event was the 'Leap of Faith'... After climbing up the pole you had to stand up straight on a small square platform. If you were brave enough you leapt off the platform to hit a large red ball before being gently lowered to the ground on the rope. When we first saw the 'Leap of Faith' most people were anxious. However, after succeeding everyone felt AWESOME!
- 09-09-2014 - Josh & LeahToday is the second day of the Year 6 residential. In the morning our activity was Gill Scrambling. Our instructor, who was called Darren, gave us safety instructions and our equipment (a belt and hard hat). Next we set off in the minibus – after a five minute journey we got and started the walk to the gill. Fifteen minutes later we were there! A gill is a like a dried up stream that you have to walk and climb up. The start was quite easy but it gradually became more challenging… At the very end there was thin gap that you had to make your way up, it was called the ‘Smartie Tube’. At the start people were quite nervous about falling down and crushing the others below them. However, at the end everyone was proud that they had challenged themselves and achieved something new.
- 08-09-2014 - Mackenzie & RienneToday we arrived at Buckden House for our Year 6 Residential. Our first outstanding activity was caving, our instructor was called Darren. He had been down in the caves roughly 300 times before. The best bit was when we got wet, from head to foot, in the ice-cold water. At one point we all had to turn off our lamps and we couldn't even see our hands in front of our faces. We face our fears in the last challenge which was to find the exit to the caves on our without Darren or Mr Jones. Finally we reached our salvation... DAYLIGHT! It was an amazing start to the residential with more exciting days to go!
