While away, we try to update each day by 11pm in the evening, with a summary of the day's activities. Click on the links to the other years to get an idea of what to expect.
Day 1 - Monday
A Full Day
At the time of writing, all of the children are quietly asleep in bed... or being very quiet at least. The children have finished their evening activity, (a game called ‘Aliens’ which involved a lot of running around though the ground in the dark with their torches) got ready for bed, had their evening drinks and have concluded a day which was long at both ends.
The journey was a little longer than we would have wished for, but we still managed to fit in a good afternoon’s activity. The weather was sunny right the way through.
So you know what the children have been doing each day, here are the groups:
Cara, Orla, Ricky, Kier, Aidan, Liam, Ryan
Carys, Isabella, Matthew, Tommy, Fred, Finley, Leonardo, Nethara
Izzy, Maria, Christian, Sam, John, Cian, Joshua
Imogen, Grace, Aimee, Maddie, Fintan, Thomas, Nathan, Jamie
Brown Pike went out on Coniston Water in a large Canoe called a voyager, and paddled a distance down the lake, with optional activities such as dipping heads in the less-than-warm water. Coniston spent their time on the orienteering course around the extensive grounds, competing in pairs. Wetherlam went mini-mountain climbing, exploring the land behind Water Park, occasionally finding that their welly boots were not tall enough to keep them dry. Swirl How group got camouflaged as they took part in a in a search and capture activity, using their stealth and silence?!?
The evening meal of home-made pizza went down well with all of the children, and all of the crockery survived the washing up.
So now it’s quiet, and we look forward to Tuesday, with all groups doing Ghyll Scrambling at some point, along with climbing, orienteering and rope activities.
