Day 4

rowla089 on: Isle of Wight Trip 2017

We felt very relieved this morning as we stepped outside and saw that the rain had finally stopped!

After breakfast, we set off and got started on the day's activities which included aeroball, archery and laser zone. In the afternoon, the whole class joined together for 'Bushcraft' where we were challenged to make a shelter in the woods. Our skills from forest school were very useful!

Everyone was extra excited today because they were finally able to take part in the activity they had been most looking forward to- spending their pocket money in the souvenir/sweet shop. At 5 pm, we all headed down towards the famous Kingswood Boutique to browse the shelves stocked with sugary snacks and every possible stationery item (printed with a Kingswood stamp). After spending all of our money, we settled in the food hall for a delicious evening meal of either BBQ chicken or curry.

Our evening entertainment tonight was 'Scapheap Challenge.' A very creative Oak Class came up with a range of designs for the recycled cardboard including: a dancing robot, hoverboard and a portable toilet.

Once we returned to our accommodation, room inspection was carried out. The points had been very close across the week so far and everyone was starting to get a bit more creative to earn more points. Even offering sweets to the teachers for extra room points.

We've had a fantastic day again today and although we're a little sad it's the last night here, we are also looking forward to our final day of adventures!

Day 3

rowla089 on: Isle of Wight Trip 2017

The heavy, non-stop showers haven't prevented us from having a great third day at Kingswood.

Typically, most of our sessions were outside but we all put on a brave face, strapped on our harnesses and didn't let the weather stop us from taking part.

Today's activities included the zip wire, balance beam and the much anticipated Leap Of Faith. Wow! Everyone was extra brave today as they faced some of Kingswood's most adrenaline-fuelled activities. The Leap Of Faith had to one of the most exciting- climbing to the top of a tall wobbly pole in torrential rain and allowing yourself to leap into the air is definitely something for extreme thrill-seekers. Every pupil in Oak Class set themselves a challenge and either reached it or went further than they thought they would. Oak Class have proved themselves to be true adventurers after today!

In the evening, there was a manic dress change as everyone swapped their soggy trainers and rain-macs for their favourite disco outfits. After dancing the night away to a range of classic disco anthems including the Macarena, we all returned to our accommodation for a much- needed hot chocolate!

Day 2

rowla089 on: Isle of Wight Trip 2017

Everyone was up bright and early this morning and eager to start the day's activities. In the morning, we all walked to the beach- fortunately the sun was out! We played lots of games and even got to paddle our feet in the sea. After treating ourselves to an ice-cream, we headed back to the centre for lunch.

After lunch, both groups took part in various activities including climbing, abseiling, problem solving and a blindfolded obstacle course. The climbing walls were pretty challenging but everyone in Oak Class was feeling determined. Even Miss Martin and Mrs Sawyer raced each other to the top! 

After dinner, Oak class took part in one final activity and finished the evening with a fun karaoke session. Miss Martin, Mrs Ashford and Mrs Sawyer impressed the class with a beautiful version of, 'Can't take my eyes off of you.'.  Although they weren't allowed the microphones again! 

We all returned to our accommodation afterwards, looking forward to the next day of activities.

Day 1 - Isle of Wight

rowla089 on: Isle of Wight Trip 2017

The pupils and teachers have all arrived safely in Kingswood, Isle of Wight after a fun filled journey. Unfortunately, the wifi access at the accommodation is not great so Miss Martin couldn't update the blog with lots of the specific facts....they will come soon! In her phone call tonight she has said that the children have been wonderfully behaved, have already enjoyed the activities that they have done (and the dinner!) and are currently doing the Culver walk! Fingers crossed that they will maybe get some sleep tonight.......
