A Busy First Day..
Well what an absolute delight the children have been today. We had a good journey and the weather behaved itself for our 45 minute walk to the centre. So far we have survived the perils of the piranha pool, without any nibbled toes, although there was a very dangerous impersonation of a piranha by a plastic tube!
The children have made us so proud with their attitude and willingness to encourage and support each other while the children were so brave getting to the top of the climbing wall and staying on top of the towering crates.
Today has has finished off with hot chocolate and biscuits. We now have some very tired children excited for tomorrow but definitely ready for a good night's sleep.....
Mrs Shaw and Miss Scott
We have had another super day, where the children have encouraged and supported each other through individual challenges and achieved much to be proud of especially when they were sometimes so certain that they "couldn't do it"!
The trapeze was a real challenge especially having to stand up on such a high platform and leap towards the bar that seemed so far away.
Mrs Scott and I have been so incredibly proud of all of the children and it has been wonderful to see huge smiles on the children's faces as they have tried and conquered new experiences.
Tomorrow we begin our journey home but not before a busy morning of activities.
After a good night's sleep, for very tired children, we are all tucking into a full cooked breakfast. Before we leave Miss Scott's group will be whizzing down the zip wire, negotiating night line and solving the puzzles of quest. Our group will be climbing high with crate challenge, firing arrows in archery and finding our way through the muddy obstacle course. See you all later.
After multiple attempts I am finally able to get on the school website. Apologies for it not being sooner. I'm going to try to add photos, but I'm not sure whether the internet is going to let me! I only have photos from Hill group today (apart from a few teatime shots). We will continue to take photos of all groups and add them where we can.
The children have gone to bed happy but exhausted after their first day here at Robinwood. They have been a credit to the school and their parents. We are all very proud of them. They are all challenging themselves and we can see their confidence growing by the minute!
The Forest group have enjoyed the Obstacle Course, caving, the Crate Challenge and the Night Line today. The weather has been windy and cold, but the children didn't seem to notice as they were having too much fun. The Wood group have taken part in canoeing, climbing, archery and the amazing Giant swing. They have told all of the others all about it and they all can't wait.
My Hill group have had a wonderful day taking part in climbing, the Night Line, canoeing and the (very challenging) Trapeze. I was so proud of the way they all challenged themselves.
I hope I can manage to upload these pictures. I'll keep trying if I'm not successful tonight.
