Residentials

It is  a fundamental principle at Norman Street that all of our Key Stage two children have the opportunity to participate and enjoy a wide range of residential opportunities. These enable children to see the wider world, provide new experiences, develop social and emotional relationships and equip them with the skills to go out into the world responsibly. The length of stay, distance from school and experiences completed are appropriate to the age of the children. For example: 

  • In Year 3 children experience an overnight stay at Ratlingate Scout Camp and participate in team games, activities to support team building and group work.
  • In Year 4 children experience 2 nights staying in Newcastle, exploring the coastal areas natural resources, local museums and a boat ride.
  • In Year 5 children participate in an outward bounds centre residential in Glaramara, Borrowdale for 3 nights. They experience hill-walking, ghyll scrambling, coracle building, archery, climbing and ab-sailing, facilitated by the experienced staff at the centre.
  • In Year 6 children have the opportunity to spend 3 nights in London.. Activities include visits to The Tower of London, The Science Museum, The Natural History Museum, The Golden Hinde (Sir Francis Drake's ship), The London Eye and a River Cruise, in addition to seeing a top West End show.
