Mud and Glitter

Last full day of activities today and we had lots of fun!

Group 1:

We started our day with Trapeze (Leap of Faith) and got into our harnesses much quicker! We were all feeling really determined despite the rain and were raring to go! Not only did we all make it to the top but Ruby, Alfie T, Liam and Lacey all jumped off the platform. This was an amazing achievement as they all conquered their fears and Miss Duggan was extremely proud of each of them! We followed this activity with archery which was enjoyed by all and Imogen got a bullseye on her first shot. Lunch was a selection of different pastas and salads.

In the afternoon, we had Sensory trail which was Miss Duggan's favourite. We were blindfolded and had to walk through obstacles and work as a team. Miss Duggan kept tickling our ears with leaves and making us jump! We finished the day with Crate stacking.

Group 2:

We started our day with archery which everyone had a real good go at! Then we moved onto trapeze. This was much more challenging in the pouring rain but everyone gave it a really good attempt. Katherine and Summer made it all the way to the top despite the weather which is a huge achievement. Well done!

Later on, we had Crate stacking and Charlotte climbed really high. This required lots of balance and made her feel 'Craaazzzyyy'. Amber gets a special mention for trying so hard with all the different foods on offer this week although she was extremely pleased when we finally were offered chicken nuggets for dinner! Henry has been the life and soul of this group and really has enjoyed his time especially at the disco with his disco moves that he has been practising for all week! 

Group 3:

This was our best day so far and we had lots and lots of fun. We began our day with archery and had varying success. Corey's plan was to make the arrow go as far as possible completely ignoring the targets! He has also been really supportive to his friends. Following this we had the giant swing, Oscar had a real laugh with Ms Ringrose and has had a really positivie attitude. Evie also enjoyed the giant swing however on the first swing past the group she was crying with fear and by the time she had swung back she was laughing yelling 'I'm fine now!!

Next we had areoball and Arda impressed everyone with his fabulous basketball and trampolining skills. This area was really muddy so everyone gave themselves mud war paint and ended up covered. Last we had Jacob's ladder. Ronnie has given every activity this week his best shot even when lacking in confidence and Ms Ringrose was very impressed. 

Tonight we had our disco! Some beautiful outfits were worn and some fabulous dance moves were performed. Miss Duggan bought lots of glitter with her so we could all decorate our faces or hair and shine through the night. There were several dance battles and lots of singing!

Problem solving and team work

We had a lot of tired looking faces this morning when we all woke for breakfast! 

Group 1: 

Today we started with the climbing wall and it was absolutely freezing! Lots of us made it to the top even though it got really slippery! Erin was chief photographer of the day and took several selfies! #SelfieQueen. Later on, we had fencing which was lots of fun. Lunch was baguettes and wraps and Erin claimed it was the best lunch yet! 

In the afternoon, we had Abseiling and Problem solving. We realised quickly that Jack was the riddle wizard! He solved many of our problems and provided lots of ideas! Let's see if they can catch you out at home!

Group 2:

We started our day with Fencing! The uniform we had to wear caused a bit of a stir with protective pads. Following this activity, we had the climbing wall. Again, most of us made it all the way to the top even with the cold! Julia has earned a new nickname: Tinkerbell as she floats gracefully down all the obstacles in her green jumper.

After lunch, we had problem solving and abseiling. James was extremely courageous and made it up the stairs to the top of the wall conquering his fear of heights! I can confirm that this was very high! He really pushed himself and that's what this trip is all about. For dinner we had fish fingers and chips! 

Group 3: 

Group 3 started their day with problem solving and vertical challenge and even Ms Ringrose gave this ago! Alfie D was a super star and rocketed to the top of the course! It involved tyres and logs to climb and was a tricky challenge. We visited the shop today and all bought lots of presents.

Then we had sensory trail and climbing. Dorka climbed to the top of the wall and whilst the others were climbing provided help, support and positive encouragement the entire time. The sensory trail was really funny and the children relied on their other senses to work their way around the course. 

In the evening, we had a game called splash. We had to earn materials through several challenges such as paper areoplanes, fashion shows and shoe towers. Once we had collected everything, we made safety boxes to keep water balloons safe when dropped from a height.
