Monday 30th October 2017:

The children arrived safely to beautiful, sunny weather. Their first activity was to go on an adventure walk where they went down mud slides, lost wellies in the mud, got feet wet in the stream and crawled through tree trunks.  They all had a fabulous time!

They were more than ready for dinner: pizza with potato wedges and salad folowed by rice pudding and jam.  After dinner the children showed off their orienteering skills in the dark! The children were still very excited by bedtime and the adults were hoping for aome sleep.......

Tuesday 31st October 2017:

The children slept well and woke up to a cloudy day of 13 degrees.Two of the groups went caving and one group went canoeing. The activities were enjoyed and many fears conquered!  Lots of fun was had getting wet and muddy again!

The evening comprised of a surprise Hallowe'en Party with ghouls, glowsticks and giggles.

The excitement is still showing in spite of the long days.  Today's activities included canoeing for two of the groups and rock climbing for the third group. Everybody had a fantastic day; made even better by the wonderful sunny weather.  Saying this, the children who were canoeing were sufficiently wet and cold after jumping in the canal at the end of the activity!

After dinner, the class went on a scavenger hunt. Bedtime for some was earlier than others as they were so tired.

Thursday 2nd November 2017:

Two groups went rock climbing today and the other went caving. The evening was spent packing and getting ready to come home. The children did this brilliantly and got everything packed really quickly. There was then a visit to the Tuck Shop before hot chocolate and bed.

Friday 3rd November:

Miss Kidd reports that the children have been fabulous. We will text you when the bus gets to Chippenham so you can be at school to meet the bus as it arrives.
