The final day

This morning everyone was still asleep when Miss Grant came around! Everyone really needed their sleep after the busy day yesterday. Whilst we had our breakfast we’ve reflected about what we’ve done here. I spoke to some of the children about their time here. They said they’ve learnt to be brave and push themselves, they’ve made new friends in other classes, theyve realised teamwork is important, they’ve had lots of fun, and they’re looking forward to seeing their parents to tell them about their trip. Alfie said he still doesn’t like heights!

Problem solving and campfire

We were definitely starting to feel the exhaustion this afternoon! But we carried on. First we did problem solving which required us to work together and try to solve tricky problems. What made them even harder is that we didn’t have particularly good weather! Then, after tea, we got together with Greasbrough and enjoyed a campfire. We sang songs, told stories and had a good giggle. 
Thank you for all your comments so far! I have been sharing them with the children and they like that you have looked at their pictures and sent them a message (: 

Fencing

This afternoon we have tried some fencing out. We learnt all the different moves and had to wear all the proper equipment

Day 2

The children are up after some sleep (some more than others!) and have fuelled themselves for the day ahead. The girls are looking forward to climbing, fencing and campfire today! 


The girls are a bit tired today but are really excited about climbing and the campfire! They really enjoyed Scrapheap Challenge last night. 


The boys can’t wait to climb! They’re missing home but feel better today 


The boys are looking forward to everything! 


What are you looking forward to? Climbing! 


The boys have loved it so far and can’t wait for all the activities today. 

Scrapheap Challenge

Our final activity of the day was Scrapheap Challenge. Again, the children had to use teamwork to create something that would protect a water balloon from bursting. If it didn’t burst they could throw it at a teacher.  None of the teachers got wet… but we had a great time. 

Low ropes

We got straight onto our first activity as soon as we arrived. We worked in teams in trust exercises using collaboration and communication to them help each other around the low ropes. 

And we’re off! 

The coach is loaded, we’re all belted up and now we’re on our way to Kingswood until Wednesday! 

Grace and Macey are excited to be with their friends but are a bit nervous about being away from home.
