First day at the Wilderness Centre
Posted by Mr A Hart
Well what a fun filled first day for the year 4's at residential. The children arrived bright eyed, and bushy tailed this morning. To introduce us to the centre, the children were given a tour of their new home for 2 days, and asked to unpack their things. The children then settled down to lunch followed by some team building games. The personal highlight, when the children were asked to transfer water using a plastic tube, and the look on the children's faces as they attempted this. To top the afternoon off, the children ... and the adults had a water fight. Great fun was had by all.
When we had a quick change of clothes, we went downstairs for dinner, (lasagne) and the children burnt off some excess energy by exploring their new surroundings. The children then settled down to watch the football. Despite the amazing opening, the children found much of the game too unbearable to watch, and resulted in going back and forth their rooms to check the result. Despite England being on the wrong end of the result, the children did not let it dampen their spirits. They've had a brilliant first day, and look forward to tomorrow!
