Tuesday evening update...

Can't get for long enough to get a photo to upload! It's been another fab day though. We spent the morning on team building games. We've also been practising lining up single file - interesting to see how hard Year 5 and 6 pupils have found this 🤣🤣🤣

 

Fuelled with pizza 🍕 we've then been climbing and had a go at archery. I couldn't be more proud of my group who overcame their fears to meet their own challenge to get up the climbing wall.

 

We've just finished tidying our tents 🏕️ ready for the now infamous Mr Woodhouse room inspection and are about to head out for our much awaited toboggan racing.

 

More soon,

Tuesday morning update...

 

We've survived the night 🤩 We've eaten a hearty breakfast 🍽️ and, most importantly, Mr Woodhouse and I have had our cup of tea ☕ We're ready for an action packed day of climbing and archery ... ⛰️🏹😬

Campfire fun

Campfire fun 1

It's been a fantastic day. Lots of fun and smiles all round. We've been on a tracking trail this afternoon, played some crazy games, eaten lots (the food is great parents - everyone is fully fed!) We've had songs round the campfire and I've administered all medicine as directed! Phew!

 

We've taken loads of photos and videos but reception is patchy so we're just popping the odd one on when we can.

 

The children have all been a real credit to you and are currently getting themselves settled down for the night in their cozy tents.

 

With love from all the happy campers.

 

More tomorrow,
