Our Year 5 children are visiting Green Park for two days. They'll be enjoying a great range of wonderful activities!
We'll provide some updates here when we can catch some internet connection!
Day One Round Up
It was lovely to see everyone arriving at Green Park this morning. The sun was shining brightly and everyone was excited about the adventure ahead.
After a short stroll around the grounds, watching out for the 'drop bears' we were straight into our first round of activities, led by the wonderful instructors at Green Park.
We enjoyed our packed lunches before getting back into another two rounds of activities. Lots of heroic tales of crashing crates, olympic climbs, fab teamwork and plenty of laughs along the way.
A delicious tea of roast dinner, followed by flapjack - wonderful!
Our evening quiz was a noisy and competitive affair.
We finished off the evning with a circle time and a song. Every child and adult shared their highlight of the day.
Now all in bed - all quiet. Goodnight!
After a good night's sleep, we've woken up really refreshed for the day ahead (or that's the story we're sticking to!)
Breakfast was an amazing array of continental delights - pain au chocolat, cereals, toast, yoghurts, fruit, organge juice.
We're now ready for another action filled day.
A great day on our activities. We started off with a song and a games in the camp fire circle (with no camp fire!)
All the children have now completed team challenges, archery, climbing, crate stacking and low ropes - and much more besides!
We've learned loads about team work, and about challenging ourselves, and about not giving up and having a positive mindset.
It was a pleasure to spend time with a wonderful bunch of children.
