To celebrate Book Week, Eagles enjoyed several book related activities:

  • They designed new covers for their favourite books. The winner will receive a book from the Book Fair.
  • They had a preview Book Fair visit and picked the books they liked the look of the most. There was a very diverse selection!
  • Mrs Taverner led a balloon debate - the children argued for the best book to stay on board their rapidly descending balloon.


Eagles arrived at Kingswood full of excitement last Wednesday. We met our group leader, Adam, and had a tour of the centre. After settling into our dorms we had our first activity. Mr Woolston came to watch the fencing group; it was apparent that he may have some hidden talent in this area. Following that, we had our first Kingswood meal, then rounded the evening off with a campfire. The Eagles were the oldest children on the corridor (the other schools were Year 4 and Year 5) which was a nice experience for them.

Thursday was packed with activities. We particularly enjoyed a new activity that Staffordshire have only been running for 8 weeks: buggy building. We used barrels and wood to create buggies that two children could ride on and compete in games.

Other activities we undertook were zipwire, archery (Mrs Holt's favourite!), caving, Nightline, problem solving and climbing. All the children set themselves personal challenges and all of them completed them. Such great resilience was shown by all.

Photos to follow.


Thank you all for attending the parents' meeting on Tuesday. I hope you enjoyed our lovely new tables and chairs!
