Three of our groups went on their Journey Day today. Brown Pike walked to cathedral quarry and turned out all the lights and couldn't see anything at all. Coniston were there as well today. Wetherlam took a large canoe and went rock climbing for their journey day. The weather was pretty good - a few showers but nothing to worry about.
While we were all busy out and about, Swirl How were on the High Ropes course and then windsurfing on the lake. They looked very wet and tired when they came back for dinner.
We won't be posting an update to the website tomorrow because we are coming home!! The coach is picking us up at around 12:30pm so we should be back at school by 2pm-2:30pm. You are welcome to come and collect your children as soon as they are back - I will put an update on our Facebook page to let parents know our exact arrival time.
It was a very long day for Swirl How today - they went out this morning on their Journey Day and didn't come back until 4:30pm! First they went to a quarry and looked down over the side to the very bottom! They climbed up a 'mountain' where the wind was strong! They ate their lunch in a cave but they tell me it wasn't too dark and scary!
Wetherlam and Brown Pike both went kayaking this afternoon and it rained so hard that, after they had put the equipment away, they all jumped in the lake since they were so wet anyway .
Coniston enjoyed their turn at windsurfing as well as an afternoon at the climbing wall. I think they are all pretty exhausted now! (I hope so, maybe we'll all get a much needed early night tonight!)
Hello again! We've all been very busy today with two activities for each group. It's almost time for dinner (chicken enchiladas!) so we'll have to be super quick with our post tonight!
Swirl How have been sailing on the lake this morning and kayaking this afternoon. It was fabulous fun and no-one fell in, so that's good!
Brown Pike were sailing too and this afternoon we were ghyll scrambling so we all got very wet!! Have a look at our photos below to see how amazing we were.
Wetherlam went into the indoor climbing wall this morning and windsurfing this afternoon. Miss Yates is a champion windsurfer!!
Coniston did their ghyll scrambling this morning and went sailing in the fun boats this afternoon. It was perfectly windy so we were able to go very fast!
Monday - Day 1
Good evening! We arrived this morning after an uneventful journey and enjoyed a lovely lunch before going out for our first activity. We are split into four groups this week; Wetherlam, Swirl How, Brown Pike and Coniston.
Brown Pike (Israr, Umaihabeeba, Najum, Daniyal, Faatimah, Raihan, Saniya, Saira and Hafsa) were with Miss Crook, Chris and Sir Eddie. We did some wind surfing this afternoon! It was an incredibly difficult activity for the first day but the whole group were amazing - determination to succeed was the motto and the effort was endless! We tried paddling on our board before kneeling up and eventually standing up on it!
Coniston (Ambreen, Aneesa, Hajrah, Safiyyah, Zaydaan, Adam, Aliyah S and Marisa) went out on the lake with Miss Darby and Alice to try their hand at kayaking. They impressed Miss Darby and Alice with their skills sailing around the cove.
Swirl How (Aalia, Eliina, Sawdah, Qudsia, Mohammed Ali, Humaid, Danny and Saif) were with Mr Wilson and Kay for their ghyll scrambling this afternoon. There were lots of slips but no falls on their way up the stream!
Wetherlam (Amnah, Noran, Arwa, Samah, Muhammad S, Isa, Hamza and Mackenzie) were joined by Miss Yates and they also went ghyll scrambling today. Everyone got all kitted out in their waterproofs, jumped on the minibus and went to climb the stream.
The photographs of our adventures are below - they may be a little mixed up but thanks to Water Park's fantastic waterproof cameras, we have lots to share with you.
