Day Two Year 6

Day two began with snow, but that didn't dampen the children's spirits. After a cooked breakfast, the children had a short kayaking lesson in the dining room. We were asked to wrap up very warm and were all kitted out with waterproof jackets and trousers. They battled against the sleet, snow and heavy winds getting up to the lake for a morning Kayaying.  Despite the weather conditions, the children loved being on the water.

Mrs Poole and Mrs Bennett are so proud of all of year six today. Each and every child has achieved a personal accomplishment over the past two days. They have all worked beautifully as a team helping each other overcome their fears and aversions, despite the weather conditions.

Year 5 Tussling Tuesday

After a hearty breakfast we headed out to the climbing area. Snow and sleet started our day,  giving way to heavy rain and gusty winds. Some children excelled with certain climbing frames and some overcame their fears of heights and managed to conquer the highest climbing pole. Unfortunately our afternoon of kayaking was cut short due to a visit from Storm Ewan !!!!  Not many photos for us today. Hot chocolate and warm showers were the safe option.

To finish the evening off, Year 5 went into the artificial caving section. This time though they went through the tunnels in complete darkness in readiness for our exciting day offsite tomorrow for both classes, where we will be abseiling and caving. Can't wait!!!!
