Isle of Wight Day Four

Isle of Wight Day Four

After our adventures in the woods yesterday, we spent the evening splashing about in the sea! You could hear the screams and laughter from the opposite side of the island, I’m sure! This morning we set off on what we thought was going to be a nice stroll around the island, but turned into a competition of World’s Strongest Child with the amount of hill climbs. The children are now wet-suited up and bobbing about in the sea with their body boards, showing off their sea skills. What a great end to the week – looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Today’s adventures were woodland based. We spent the morning swinging through the trees and building shelters. The children had to prove their shelters were storm-worthy, which meant the teachers had a great time getting them with water pistols! We then enjoyed a sunny picnic lunch and did a spot of sun-bathing. This afternoon was spent putting Robin Hood and his Merry Men to shame with a great archery session, and using our Forest School training to build fires. This evening we will be heading down to the beach, followed by a nice swim in the pool whilst the sun sets. What a perfect end to a fun-filled day!

Hello from sunny Isle of Wight! We spent the morning designing and creating rafts that were supposed to keep us dry in the water. However, as predicted, most of us ended up getting pretty wet – not sure how that happened! We then had a go at snorkelling before tucking into a yummy lunch. The afternoon consisted of scrambling and smuggling (easier to explain in person). You’ll be pleased to know that everyone’s had at least one shower and the teachers were allowed to sleep in until 6:45am!

We’ve arrived! After quite a few sweets and a slight delay getting on the ferry, the children are currently sitting on the beach, enjoying the view. They have all settled in to their rooms and even had to make their own beds – a task that stumped quite a few of them I have to say! All enjoyed their lunches whilst on the ferry and are looking forward to either a chicken burger or cheese & veggie burger for tea. I’m sure after all the excitement they will all sleep soundly in their beds tonight, straight through to their 7:30 wake up call…
