Monday 28th June

Y6 left on their very long awaited Overstrand Hall adventure today.  Please check back here during the week for regular updates.

15:55 They have just pulled in to the driveway, so the journey took longer than expected but they have arrived safely.


Tuesday 29th June

8.45 Last night the children did a range of activities including a 2.5 mile walk, a blindfolded ‘follow my leader’ activity through the woods, aeroball (basketball on trampolines) and orienteering.  They took a while to get to sleep but then all slept well.  Breakfast was at 7.00am and they are now getting ready for today’s activities.

19.10 It’s coming home!

Some photos from yesterday:


8.45  The children were exhausted yesterday after their rope climbing and late night the previous night so slept VERY well.  Asleep by 10 and no tears.  They had a mini olympics last night and they are off to the beach today so hoping it stays dry.

9.40  Bouldering and archery for 6F this morning and low ropes and a STEM activity for 6G.  There are some photos from the climbing on the slideshow in Tuesday morning’s update.
