Evening The rest of our day here passed very enjoyably. After everyone had had a turn playing games in the forest, learning to fire light, and painting postcards, it was of course time to squeeze in some much needed frisbee and tyre swing time! Our dinner this evening was a ‘self cook’: each clan worked as a team to build a fire, light it, and then use it to cook their own pasta sauces (recipe designed individually by clan!). We were also then responsible for extinguishing our fires. The self cook was a huge success and Year 6 took well deserved pride in their efforts! After dinner we got into our pyjamas and enjoyed even more frisbee time! Finally, it was time for our campfire to end the night. We got to enjoy a beautiful sunset as we sang songs around the campfire. Mr Hanratty led us on guitar and lots of pupils suggested songs and even took on solos! It was a lovely end to the evening before we settled in to our tents. We’re looking forward to what tomorrow holds!
14:57 The sun has continued to shine as we got on with the day’s activities! We’ve all taken it in turns to head to the woods, take part in some tree climbing and play some games! When not in the woods, each group has had the chance to learn about firelighting, and practice ahead of our ‘self cook’ tonight, as well as painting a postcard to send home! We stopped for lunch around the campfire, and even managed to squeeze in some more time for free play and the tyre swing!
11:24 The sun is shining on us here in Kent and we’re getting stuck in to another day of activities! After a tasty breakfast we made sure our bowls and plates were clean and washed. We started out by reflecting in our clans on what we’ve enjoyed so far and what we’re looking forward to. We also had a bit of free play time to enjoy the camp in the sunshine. After getting our sun cream and sun hats on we have headed off to take part in some more activities!
07:55 Good morning from our sunny camping spot! We were all up bright and early this morning ready for the day’s activities. Here are some lovely photos of our camp as the sun rose this morning. Now it’s time for breakfast! Every day starts with porridge and a variety of tasty toppings. Then it’s time for second breakfast - we’ll be well fuelled for the day to come!
