Thank you to all the year 4 children for such a brilliant trip!  They showed fantastic team work, supporting each other, cheering each other on and refusing to give up!  We hope the birthday girl had a great birthday and sleeps well tonight!  Thank you to Mrs Thomas and Mr Cahill for all their help and support - we couldn't have done it without them.  Have a good sleep and a great weekend - photos will appear in the next few days!


Thursday 3rd May - evening

We have had a day of sunshine and the children made the most of it at the beach, buying ice-cream and building sun castles! We have done nightlife, outdoor problem solving, archery, wall climb and low ropes too and finished the day with a night walk. They are all in bed fast asleep at 10.05pm! 


What a brilliant group of children! All asleep just after 10pm and just starting to stir. The sun is shining and it is a beautiful day outside. Looking forward to a long day of activities including the beach and a night walk to watch the sunset. 


Wednesday 2nd May

The children are all very excited! After a torrential downpour when we first arrived the weather is now sunny but cold. The children have all done their first activity and eaten a very big dinner! We are now getting ready for a song song by the campfire before bed at 10pm - it could be a long night!
