We run two residential visits at Hill View School. Letters are sent out in January for children to enrol for trips.
In Year 4 the children visit Hooke Court in Dorset, a residential centre that caters for a wide range of educational and physical activities. During the visit the children participate in:
- Low Ropes Challenge Course
- Night line
- A Murder Mystery
- Tribal Kingdom Day
- Wide Games
- Rocket building
All the activities are designed to encourage both teamwork and work on independence skills. The centre is located in a beautiful setting deep in the heart of Dorset. All meals are home cooked and follow our own healthy eating philosophy.
In year 6 the children take part in a visit to Dartmoor in Devon. The children stay on a farm where they get the opportunity to care and look after many of the animals including rabbits, chickens and a barn owl!!
Over the four days the children experience the following:
- A visit to the Eden Project
- A day at Tree Surfers
- Singing around a campfire
- A Y6 talent show
- Many different farm jobs and responsibilities
This visit is a great opportunity for the children to begin to celebrate their last year together at the school.
