Day three started with the invigorating ‘Stream Walk‘ – where, unfortunately, we couldn’t take photographic equipment (iPads) – due to being fully submerged in the activity,
After wonderfully hot showers, we headed off to experience caving – using proper caving head torches.
Our very last activity was one of the most testing, when it came to nerves… ‘The Trapeze‘. There are some fantastic videos demonstrating children overcoming their fears and developing trust – I will see if I can get these on the blog back at school.
Huge apologies, we have a jittery iPad and are struggling to get it to behave. Please bear with us whilst we keep trying – we will use an alternative iPad for that group today and get sone up ASAP.
Wow what a fantastic first day!
The children have been fantastic working together in teams on the zip wire, climbing wall, nightlife, quest and obstacle course – finished off by biscuits and hot chocolate before bedtime.
Tomorrow is an action packed day with a whopping 7 more activities keeping them busy all the way to bed time!
Photos will follow group by group as they are added from the different iPads – so please be patient.
The children love hearing the messages you write – when we relay them to them – so please feel free to send messages!
After a slow start (traffic in Bradbury) we escaped to the rolling hills and twisting turns of the Cumbrian / Northumberland hills.
We’ve had a lovely hike to the centre and a picnic whilst we choose our menus for our stay.
It’s now time for getting to grips with the duvets before starting our first activities.
Good evening Parents and children,
What a fantastic trip we have had!!! From going up the London Eye to the 4D cinema experience to MCDonalds, to the amazing Matilda to dancing and singing on the coach and to the awesome activities we did today at PGL. We have all had the most amazing experience and finished our day with a smile on our face!
One final note: Children you were amazing, fantastic, unbelievable and every other positive adjective in the dictionary! The amount of brilliant comments we received about your manners and behaviour from other schools, staff at the venues we went to and general passers by was overwhelming and shows just how fantastic you are, your parents should be proud!! Thankyou for making this trip the best ever, here are two of my fave pics…
This is Mr Norton officially signing off #London2017!
Good evening everyone,
Please see the picture below for 3 items that were left on the coach. Also, please keep an eye out for a Kindle in your child’s suitcase as one has gone missing (and was not left at PGL after extensive searches were undertaken) and we are wondering if someone packed it in their bag by mistake!
We are adding pictures to the “More activities” post as we speak so keep an eye out for new photos!
We have all had a lovely breakfast and are now on our way to complete our two activities: Giant Swing and Archery!
Signal is a bit hit and miss but I will blog as much as I can!
We have arrived safely at the PGL and everyone is tucked up in bed!
We have all had a fantastic but exhausting day and are ready for some sleep!
