Y5 Residential to Waddow Hall

Year 5 Residential Visit 2018


We are delighted to inform you that we are organising a two day (one night) residential educational adventure activity course at Waddow Hall near Clitheroe, Lancashire. It provides a rewarding and challenging series of outdoor and indoor activities, with secure and controlled residential accommodation.


Residential courses organised by the school are optional, but an invaluable part of the National Curriculum. Pupils benefit hugely from the experience, both educationally and socially and I feel certain that the adventure programme we have chosen will prove to be both enjoyable and very worthwhile, providing a lasting memory of Year 5 at Riverside Junior School. Activities will be varied and include Jacobs Ladder, Zip Wire, Low Ropes and Nightline.


The visit will take place from Tuesday 8th May to Wednesday 9th May 2018. The cost of the visit will be £90.00. The cost includes, full board accommodation and a full programme of indoor, outdoor, day and evening activities. The cost of the coach will be funded by Riverside School Sports Premium.


To confirm your booking, an initial non-refundable deposit of £25.00 is required by Friday 12th January 2018. The remainder of the total cost is due by Friday 30th March 2018.

We hope you will consent to your child joining us on this residential visit, but please do speak to me if you need any further information or have any questions or concerns.


Warm regards,


Rachel Burton Head teacher
