01/11/2021 Mrs Hall has just messaged to say
“Just arrived and settling in to the cabins. All very excited to see whose bunk is whose and getting ready now for zip wiring. After dinner, we have indoor climbing and then hopefully, an easy bedtime!”

02/11/2021 Daily Update – Everyone slept really well and all had to be woken up this morning! Sleepy heads! We’re off abseiling this morning and on the lake canoeing and kayaking this afternoon – fingers crossed we all stay dry! For our evening activity we are doing blind folded obstacle course (although it’s so dark we probably won’t need the blindfolds!)

Behaviour has been excellent and the instructors are so pleased with our school.

03/11/2021 – An amazing night last night. All children asleep by 10pm and all had to be woken up this morning! I think the fresh air on the lake yesterday has tired them our! We’re off into the underground maze today, (which is currently full of mud!), followed by a climb up the climbing tower. We then are going to practise our survival skills in the woods and can’t wait to end the day with the disco. It’s going too fast!

04/11/2021 – Good morning! Last night was incredible with most children fast asleep before “lights out”…we also had a cheeky lie-in this morning too which was well deserved. We’re off on our hike this morning across Cardingmill Valley and are keeping our fingers crossed for some sightings of wild ponies. After that we’re on our hands and knees through the mud obstacle course (let’s hope we have enough clean socks left to change back into!) and then a night walk to do some star gazing. The weather is incredible; not a cloud in the sky. It’s gone very quickly and the children can’t believe we only have one full day left. I’ll keep you all updated on our ETA for tomorrow as soon as we hit the motorway. See you soon!

05/11/2021 – What an amazing week we have had! The children have really excelled themselves in terms of behaviour, resilience and positivity. They have been an absolute delight to take away, and we have been so proud to be their teachers this week. We cannot believe how quickly the week has gone.

To end our holiday, we are orienteering today (now we know the site like the back of our hands!) and are indoor climbing – so fingers crossed, a relatively mud-free end to the trip. We aim to leave at around 1.30pm and ,dependent on the traffic, we hope to be back in Gawcott between 4 and 5pm. I will, of course, update you as we hit the motorway. See you all soon.

Mrs Hall and Mrs Farragher
