Today the wind has been gusty but not as strong as yesterday. We have had yet another busy day with activities such as balance beam, leap of faith. 3G swing, Aeroball, and Initiative Games. We are having a camp fire this evening and we hope the rain holds off. Most of us had to be woken yet again by the teachers after a good night‘s sleep. We have eaten well and have enjoyed hot dogs tonight with pancakes and syrups for pudding We have began to pack to come home tomorrow but we don’t know how we got so much in our cases when we packed last weekend. Mrs T has black bin bags which some of will be using in addition to our suitcases! 

We are leaving the centre at 1.30pm tomorrow and should be catching the 2.30pm ferry. Some ferries were late or cancelled yesterday and today so we hope ours will be on time. The teachers will contact school if we are going to be late back. 

See you all soon.

Day 3 has been very, very  windy and a few heavy showers passed our way this morning. The day has been very enjoyable but everyone is feeling  windswept and in fact many of us have very rosy faces this evening. We have challenged ourselves today with all groups experiencing a high ropes activity. These included Leap of Faith, Jacob's Ladder and Indoor Climbing. We have set ourselves goals for the activities and most of us achieved these . Other activities included problem solving ( which we learnt that to be successful we neededs to talk and explain our ideas to each other),  an Obstacle course, an Orienteering activity and many more. We have continued to eat very well and today we had a  cooked breakfast,  chicken nuggets and chips for lunch and a roast beef dinner this evening. Other options were available but most of us went for these. We slept well again last night and the teachers had to wake many of us - they said they hoped this will continue for the next two mornings.  We also went to the site shop after lunch and have now spent the money that was burning a hole in our pockets.

We are all looking forward to our last full day tomorrow and can't believe the week has gone so fast.

 

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.

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!
