Day 1

We have arrived safe and well.  Today we have explored the site and have had an amazing dinner.  Chicken nuggets/veg nuggets and chips or chickpea and coconut curry.  There is a lovely fresh salad bar and fresh fruit and juice.

The children have settled into their rooms and tonight we have had a campfire experience singing songs etc…  Tomorrow is raft building, high ropes and abseiling. the evening activity is passport to the world.

Day 2

After a full breakfast of hot and cold food we headed out to Lake Clive for our raft building challenge.  The children worked together in their groups and used the barrels ropes and wood to create a raft that would support them all.  they learnt how to tie a figure of 8 knot too.  Once assembled they played lots of games that involved them paddling their raft and swimming in the lake.  Lunch was chilli, jacket potato or soup with the normal salad bar.  Our activities this afternoon were the abseiling and high ropes.  All the children have pushed themselves this afternoon to at least have a go and climb up the towers – we are proud of all of them no matter how much or how little they completed.  Dinner tonight has been piri piri chicken or bolognaise and ice cream.  Tonight our final activity is Passport to the World.

Day 3

A great night’s sleep was had by all and we have had yet another amazing day with our brilliant children! After a fabulous breakfast we split into our groups for our activities.  Zip wire, trapeze, challenge course, giant swing and sensory trail were some of the activities.  Lunch today was filled baguettes or wraps and soup and tonight we had chicken tikka, fish fingers and a chocolate muffin all with a great salad bar and fresh fruit. Today the children have really pushed themselves to try and achieve some of the higher activities and we are proud of what they have accomplished. Tonight is wacky races. I hope that you are enjoying our daily photos.  Don’t forget to click on a picture to see the full size image – Miss Allison

Day 4

Once again after a great breakfast we went off to our activities.  Today was the zip wire, giant swing, archery and kayaking.  The weather has has been amazing today and being out on the water was incredible.  We can’t believe it has been our last full day.  We had pasta for lunch or soup and chicken kiev and sausages and mash for dinner along with salad and fresh fruit. Tonight we have a photo challenge activity.

Day 5

We were all sad as this was our last day!  We made the most of a hearty breakfast and we completed our last bits of packing and moved all our belongings to a couple of cabins. Next, we went off to our climbing and low-ropes activities.  After a lovely lunch of chicken or beef burgers and chips it was time to bring our cases up to the coach.  Our leader was called Alice and she had been amazing all week so each group gave her a little bag of sweets to say thank you.  The children have had an amazing week and we were all sad to leave.
