Day 3

Teacher Blogger (Blogger) on: Robinwood 2017

A good sleep was had by all, we've ate a hearty breakfast and are storming our way through the morning's activities.

Whirlpool and Iceberg are on the trapeze before archery and finishing with the zip wire.

Ocean and Wave are raft building before completing the Knight's Quest and the giant swing.

We will keep updating Twitter throughout the day with pictures as well as our expected time of arrival at school.

See you all later.


A Brilliant Day

We've nearly reached the end of another amazing day. It's certainly been action packed.

After lunch, Whirlpool and Iceberg spent a couple of hours on the lake canoeing and building rafts. There was some very interesting designs but on the most part kept the children dry! However, they then jumped into the rather cold lake in a serious show of bravery! We then entered the mysterious caves and wiggled our way through the tunnels.

Ocean and Wave turned into Robin Hood on the archery course, solved the knight's mystery on the challenge course and then braved the dangers of the PIRANHA POOL!!! Fantastic teamwork made it a great success!

We have had a very filling tea and are now completing our Team Challenge event to see which group will be victorious... or will it be the adults?? We will then be sharing blog comments before hot chocolate and bed for a good night's sleep before our last few activities tomorrow.


Drizzle, drizzle, drizzle...

The children have not let the miserable weather dampen their spirits and all the smiles have paid off, the clouds are moving away!

Whirlpool and Iceberg have used their hearing and touch to find their way around the obstacle course of nightline, worked as excellent partners on the challenge course and  built enormous towers in the crate challenge. Miss Havercroft and Miss Newton have been very impressed with the communication and risk-taking.

Ocean and Wave have flown through the air along the zip wire, showed off their circus skills on the trapeze and braved the icy water in canoeing. Miss Wright and Mrs Gray are very pleased with how fantastically the children have been supporting and encouraging each other.

We are just eating dinner and refuelling for this afternoon. Keep checking Twitter for updates and photos.


Rise and Shine!

Good morning. 

We are well rested and well fed ready for our second day of adventures. Our first challenge of the day was putting on waterproofs - it's a bit drizzly today. 

We'll keep you updated through the blog and twitter throughout the day.


At the end of day...

The children are all tucked up in bed after hot chocolate and a blog update. The children loved the comments!

Whirlpool and Iceberg tested their brains building some spectacular rockets and then broke the fear factor entering the PIRANHA POOL...

Ocean and Wave showed excellent teamwork building enormous towers of crates and braved the caves. One team even played Quidditch inside!

We are all going to have a well deserved night's sleep and we are all looking forward to the fun in store tomorrow.

Keep checking Twitter for photos, we will continue to add a small selection. We are taking lots of photos while we are here, which will be added to the school website at the weekend.
