Day 1 – Sunday
The children were in fine form this afternoon as they excitedly took on the first round of Kingswood challenges.
Although, I admit that I felt slightly uneasy about the archery, as my class stood armed with their bows and arrows and wide spread grins stretched across their faces. Had my recent setting of extra homework been a bad idea? Luckily, the children turned their attentions to the target board, which was good considering their skill and accuracy. Holly the Hot Shot was particularly impressive, hitting gold several times! Phew, I survived the day!
While the archers were busy taking aim, the rest of the class were having lots of fun on the bouldering wall. George and Sam McMillan were the last men climbing in the bouldering challenge. The children traversed across the wall Spider Man style and managed to hang on the longest to take the best prize of all….pride! Bring on the high wall!
After a tasty dinner of tacos, seasoned potatoes and a huge salad, we were all ready for our Karaoke session. However, mysteriously, the sound system developed a technical fault after Niamh, Holly, James and Benjamin kicked us off with an Amy Winehouse number. Will just have to save my duet with Mrs Bastin for later in the week!
We ended the evening with some fun class games; during these we discovered that Niamh can do a very good impression of the boys!
After story time with Ben, Class 6 headed off to bed with some having more success than others at getting to sleep straight away!
Day 2 – Monday so far…
The children showed no signs of a LATE first night this morning as they bounced down to breakfast (although the same can’t be said for the teachers)!
Oliver came to the rescue with his organisational skills this morning when he helped everyone in the boys dormitory to make their beds!
Will update again later with more of the days adventures.
