Monday 5th June - Kingswood

We're here! After arriving yesterday, we spent a while making our beds (some of us taking a little longer than others-quite a few 'duvet cover ghosts'!) and then did our first activity. Year 5s went indoor climbing, where a few managed to scamper right to the very top of the wall-Ellie and Chloe C were like Spiderwomen as they zipped up in record time! Year 6s learnt a little about the war, as they went the other way, caving in a WW2 pillbox, exploring the tunnels. After that we all joined together to do some circus skills, spinning plates, throwing diablos, and attempting to toss circus sticks to each other!

Bedtime...there are definitely more than a few bleary-eyed faces this morning! First-night excitement led to there still being a few voices heard at 1am: I predict a quieter night tonight, particularly after a full day of go-carting, climbing, and much more...

Keep checking the photo album for picture updates! :)

 

Monday 5th June - Evening

Wow! An action-packed day full of activities! The children have abseiled, go-karted, indoor-climbed, gone blind-folded around an obstacle course, shot some arrows, gpne caving, climbed Jacob's ladder, and, to top it all off, drank cocoa around a campfire! Full marks to them all, they've given everything they had today, and shown great enthusiasm and determination all round, despite some people's lack of sleep! Leo certainly showed that he wasn't afraid of heights-despite struggling with the climbing wall yesterday, he was pumped up to go abseiling-in fact, everyone at least managed to climb to the very top of the tower, and very few didn't manage the descent. Sophie also showed great character: after getting to the top but climbing back down the first time, she was determined to abseil on her second go! Well done to everyone-now get some sleep...

Wednesday 7th June

Rain...rain...rain...and more rain! After several changes of clothes, we finally sat down with hot cocoa to reflect on the day's activities, carried out in the wettest conditions possible! Twin-seat quads, low ropes, the big zip wire - great fun, and we were surprisingly unsubdued by the torrential rain that persisted throughout the day. In fact, it just made for bigger splashes and a greater opportunity for teamwork! It's been an excellent day, and there's just this morning to go before we all come home, ready for a sleep in our own beds. Let's hope the rain stays away for this morning's session, as some of us are down to our last pair of dry socks...
