Good morning (although for some it may have felt like the middle of the day!)
Before breakfast we were tasked with the challenge of making our rooms inspection ready. The girls were extremely successful with this, which resulted in all of the rooms receiving maximum points along with a mascot. It was pleasing to find out that one of the boys rooms also gained full marks (well done to Mountbatten).
Our day started with a hearty breakfast of cereal, bacon, spaghetti hoops and toast - perfect to start the physically challenging day ahead.
We were split into four teams and throughout the course of the day we would all participate in String Trail, Jacob’s Ladder, Shelter Building and Fire Lighting which would all entail a great level of teamwork, perseverance and communication.
‘I climbed up the Jacob’s Ladder, which is a giant climbing frame, it was super scary but I made it to the top!’ – Holly
‘After that we did fire lighting. Mr Dockrell is really good at it and I started lots of fires with my flint and steel’ – Iyin
We had a very relaxing evening after our meal of spaghetti and meatballs. Our eagerly anticipated film night with hot chocolate, cream and marshmallows had arrived. We voted to watch ‘The Greatest Showman’ which we knew would result in some singing along with great gusto. The staff were heard singing ‘This is me’ very loudly!
Looking around the room at the number of yawns the teachers were anticipating (silently cheering inside) that lights out would be a swift procedure this evening – we didn't disappoint as the dorm was silent by 9.45pm.
We look forward to a fun packed day tomorrow after our well rested sleep. ZZzzzzz
