Motivating YEAR 6 residential trips 


Give students a chance to shine as they create lifelong memories together

If you’re teaching in Year 6, we can design a school residential trip that’s tailored to the needs and interests of your students, sparking their imaginations and getting them motivated to get stuck into every activity.

For Year 6 students, a longer school residential trip is ideal. It gives them the chance to really immerse themselves in the experience, get lost in the moment and switch off from their screens and daily distractions. 

So, whether you’re looking for an end of year celebration or a start of the year trip to strengthen friendships, we’ll create the perfect school residential trip for you.


What you get with a Rootd trip for Year 6

With a Rootd school trip, there are no hidden extras. Everything is included in the price – we just ask that you bring a packed lunch for your first day.

There are three essential elements to a Rootd residential primary school trip for your Year 6 students:

Tent icon

Outdoor adventure activities

Pot holing, climbing, high ropes and more to develop perseverance, build confidence and boost resilience.
Camp fire icon

Bushcraft survival skills

Making meaningful connections with nature, learning new skills and overcoming challenges.

Team building games and activities

Supporting each other to build stronger bonds and deeper friendships.

We take a different approach

At Rootd, our Year 6 residential trips offer something different from most adventure companies. We don’t book you onto an ‘off the shelf’ trip, rushing you from activity to activity. We want students to have the time to take in their environment and the freedom to explore the surrounding woodlands.

As well as taking part in your normal residential activities, such as climbing and abseiling, they’ll also go back to basics building shelters, lighting fires and enjoying evenings singing around the campfire with their classmates.

They’ll see nature at its best and go home feeling inspired by the potential for adventure in the great outdoors.
