We all arrived safe and sound; with our first challenge being climbing up to the castle. All our class leaders are amazing and got to know the kids really quickly, second challenge was making their own beds! After lunch we were straight into our afternoon timetable which included the climbing wall, archery, giant swing and Trapeze. We couldn't be prouder of the way all children have approached the activities on our first afternoon showing resilience, team work and enthusiasm. Here are a few pictures from our first afternoon.


We have had a good nights sleep and are ready for the day ahead. After a hearty breakfast we moved straight on to our activities. Miss Hudson's group and Mrs Gallagher's group have hit the zip wire and are currently having a go at the crate challenge. Miss Lockwood's group have had to have their wits about them with night line and the piranha pool.

After a late lunch all 3 groups have had a busy afternoon. Miss Hudson and Mrs Gallagher's group took on the Challenge Course and Miss Lockwood's group had to get their brains working in the Knights Quest. We are now taking part in rock climbing and caving. All children have been brilliant again today, they are all challenging themselves and working together to help each other through the trickier challenges. We are all going to get another good night's sleep ready for our final morning tomorrow!


Our final Instalment of photos before we have lunch and then  head back down the big hill to begin our journey home. We won't give too much away because the children can't wait to tell you all about it themselves this evening!
