Willersley 2023 – Wednesday

Willersley 2023


What an amazing day. We have done more rifles and archery, some low ropes and climbing, along with zip wires and aero ball and initiative exercises. We've had a few moments of wet weather and it can also be a bit chilly but there's nothing can spoil the amazing fun that we're having.


Archery & Rifles

We all got chance to work on our aim today - outside with archery and then inside with rifles. Not only do you have to master holding the equipment but we also had to learn to make corrections to our aim. If the first arrow doesn't hit the target, how do we correct our stance to get a better result the next time?

Overcoming Fear

Just going away from home for a full week was the first test - even if we've done it before there's always some anxiety, and even if we absolutely love the chance to experience so much, we can't help but miss home. Then there's the activities themselves. For some of us it's the water activities, or climbing, or zip wire - but we all find ways to get over the nerves. Part of the strength comes in getting on so well as a team. We all help each other along and give moral encouragement.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
