CALL OF THE WILD 2018
All packed. Have played mini Olympics this morning. Now just walking down to bus. See you in a bit!
The best day yet? Today has been another glorious day. The children have reached great heights climbing and we have all had an amazing time gorge walking.
We are now putting our glad rags on ready for a boogie. We have quite a lot of packing to do before we come home Mrs Bullock is worried it won't fit back in the bags!
Wow what a day! The children have had the most wonderful day kayaking, canoeing and raft building on the lake. Guess what? We got very wet! However, we soon dried off in the tropical heat. We have waved goodbye to Miss Bishop and Miss Thomas and welcomed Mr Bandfield and Miss Bushnell in to camp. This evening we are orienteering ourselves around Maeys y Fron farm in the evening sun.
The children have been truly amazing today: overcoming fears and stretching themselves to their limits. After a big breakfast, we headed to the caves. Here we clambered over rocks, hid in the dark, squeezed through tiny gaps and guess what? Got very wet again - there seems to be a common theme over the last two days! We then ventured on a waterfall walk where we tasted wild garlic, dandelion lions and sorrel. We saw beautiful waterfalls and walked through a river.
Tonight we are learning about sheep farming and singing around the campfire. Mrs Bullock is hoping for a marshmallow or two as well as a bit a lie in the morning! She lives in hope. All children are doing very well.
We have arrived safely. The children have enjoyed an afternoon of team building: working together, listening and co-operating in glorious sunshine. The children have been crate stacking and hanging around in trees; damming streams with their bodies; mastering assault courses and getting very wet! Tonight we are climbing Cribath and are looking forward to Mrs Powers' cakes on our return. We couldn't have had a more glorious first day!
We are now
