Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Zipping all over the place

Good morning!

We awoke to the aroma of sausage and eggs from the dining room. Some of us awoke to the sound of Mr Gagnon, Mr Dockrell and Mrs Foreman banging on our doors to wake us up!

After fuelling our bodies and ensuring we had a good coat of sun cream on we headed off in our separate groups to take part in our morning activities.

Some of us who were a little unsure of the zip wire soon overcame our worries and harnessed up ready to give it a go. Watching the excitement on people’s faces was amazing and there were some very impressive Superman poses.

Our teamwork skills were tested during our orienteering session with John. Following a map reading lesson we had to work together, stay together and communicate effectively in order to find the correct locations using a map and a key. The winning team won a lifetime supply of…fresh air!


For some of us our fencing taster sessions in school last week prepared us for our fencing duels.

Lunch of a jacket potato, chicken Caesar and salad filled us up nicely ready for the afternoon sessions. We all took part in different activities that we will all take part in over the course of the weekend.

Following afternoon activities, we were straight back into the dining room (we are being well fed) for our evening meal of chicken, potato wedges, rich, sweet and sour pork or vegetable chow mein with carrot cake desert much to the excitement of the staff.

The anticipated trip to the PGL shop was up next! We enjoyed looking around to see what gifts we could purchase to remind us of our time on the Isle of Wight.

Tears (of laughter), twerking and tremendous singing could sum up our campfire experience with Michaela and Sabrina (with a special guest appearance from Mr Dockrell). We enjoyed a wide array of campfire songs and stories whilst we sat around a blazing fire in the cool evening speckled shade of the trees.

Ask us to share some of our favourite campfire songs (with actions) with you.

Funnily enough everyone was looking rather sleepy after not much sleep the previous night and having lots of fresh air today.

Some of us couldn't’t even wait for lights out as we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow.

All was silent in camp by 10pm as we drifted off to sleep ready for the excitement that tomorrow will bring.
