Day 2

Most of us were awaken by staff this morning after a good night sleep. We had a cooked breakfast and lots of cereal, yoghurt and toast. Then we were ready for our days' activities. We all had a go on the zip - wire including the adults - we don't know who screamed the loudest. We also went on nightline which is great fun. other activities included indoor climbing, team tech, bottle rockets and volleyball. We had sand everywhere. Now we are taking part in Mini Olympics. The food has been great and the most popular choice at lunch was sausage roll and chips and we did enjoy the doughnuts for pudding this evening.

One of us is celebrating our tenth birthday today. She had cards and presents and we sang happy birthday to her. She having lots of fun today but a different birthday which she won't forget.

The staff are hoping we sleep as well tonight!

Day 1

We arrived safely this afternoon after a lovely journey - ferry was smooth and sun had come out before we crossed the solent. We found our rooms and have unpacked and made our beds!! All have enjoyed the first activities- some of us made bottle rockets, some went abseiling and others had to be very brave as they had to experience the 3G swing. All have eaten well and we are now off to bed. 

We will  keep in touch.

The IOW Urchfont Adventurers 


This year a group of 6 children have engaged in a young leaders program called 'Play Maker' led by our outreach PE teacher from Lavington School. During the sessions they planned, delivered and evaluated activities for the younger children in the school. Now they are officially 'Play Leaders' and they run games and activities at playtime and lunch time. They are easily recognised in their brightly coloured play leader hoodies and we are very impressed by the way they have added a new dynamic to playtimes.

Hello Owls


Only three days before we go on the Y5/6 residential to Kingswood on the Isle of Wight. Please look carefully at your kit list and remember it is useful to have your kit in a suitcase/bag with wheels as it is quite a long walk to our dormitory from the coach drop off point. In addition, you will need a small snack for mid - morning, your lunch (in a disposable bag) and your water bottle, any medication, and pocket money.

We are looking forward to taking you.

Have  a lovely weekend.

The staff
