The Year 5 Experience

The Year 5 Experience

Year 5 Prep pupils enjoyed their annual experience day at Cheltenham College, as part of a programme of events which introduce the wide variety of activities that make up life at the senior school. In the morning everyone took part in a round robin of CCF and leadership activities, run mostly by College students. The activities were followed by an fantastic opportunity to ask the students themselves all about what it is like to be a senior school pupil. After lunch in the College's grand Dining Hall, the Year 5's had taster lessons in German, Spanish, Textiles and Resistant Materials. Everyone gave wonderful feedback, saying they'd had a very enjoyable day and that it gave them a great glimpse of the opportunities available at College. Here's what some of the Year 5 pupils thought of the day:

"I loved the challenge of climbing over the wall in CCF. At first I could not do it, but then my friends helped me and it made me realise about the importance of teamwork and sticking at something." - Mia

"I liked using the sewing machines because it was something new and also we made a drawstring bag to take home.." - Noah

"All the teachers were really nice and friendly. They made us feel welcome." - Zara 

"Going through the tunnel in CCF was scary as I get claustrophobic. But once I did it I felt a great sense of achievement. I'm glad I challenged myself." - Kate
